It’s official: Leslie Frazier will become the eighth head coach in Minnesota Vikings history. The defensive coordinator turned interim head coach agreed to a deal with the club on Monday.
L. Frazier (US Presswire)
Frazier led the Vikings to a 3-3 record as their interim head coach, which is more impressive when you consider that the team’s starting quarterback and All-Pro left guard got heart. Oh, and also when you consider that the roof of the team’s home stadium collapsed.

Frazier, a Cover 2-focused defensive coordinator, has been a highly-respected assistant and much-talked about head coaching candidate for several years now. Players were pushing strongly for Zygi Wilf to give the 51-year-old a chance.

Given the circumstances in Minnesota, Frazier is likely the most qualified candidate Wilf could have hoped to lure. The Vikings have stadium issues and questions about their long-term future in Minnesota. They don’t have a quarterback. Plus, the head coach does not have significant say over personnel, as those duties are handled by front office leader Rick Spielman.

Still, this is a good fit and opportunity for a deserving first-time head coach. And it’s a strong indication that the Vikings will keep the core of their organization and roster intact in 2011.

Hey jackass, I'm married to a minority, so go F yourself pal. 2nd, although I am white, where on my profile does it say that,,,,please Einstien, point that sh*t out to me, right after you pull your head out of your a s s ... I do think the Rooney Rule is complete BS though. The job should be given to the best person available for the job, and there should not be ANY merit given to anyone regardless of the color of their skin. There are idiots / knuckleheads of all colors, who don't deserve to be a head coach. Wade Phillips is a great DC, but not so good as a head coach. Same thing for all of the Cowboys previous HC's except for Bill, Jimmy & Tom Landry, and ALL of those guys were white. It has been said that Singletary is a good motivator, but bad at X's & O's, and I think his record bears that out. Marvin Lewis has never really impressed me either, and I will be surprised if he was back in Cincy. I don't think Jack Del Rio is HC material, but he's gettin $5 million a year. And I don't know how Mangini has gotten 2 HC jobs. I do think that Rivera in San Diego deserves a shot, but I also think he will fail when he does get one. HC in the NFL has got to be an incredible amount of pressure, and that's why there are so few good ones. But I just think that to force a team or business for that matter to have to interview someone based on their skin color is WRONG!
