As expected, Leslie Frazier is out of a job this morning after a dismal 5-10-1 season.  The Vikings front office made the announcement early Monday morning.

According to the press release from the MN Vikings:

“We have tremendous respect and appreciation for Leslie and what he has done for the Minnesota Vikings,” said Vikings owner Zygi Wilf. “He stepped in and established a strong positive culture here and he has been the consummate professional as our head coach and in this community. Making this change is difficult, but what we determined is best for the organization.”

“Unfortunately, we did not achieve consistent success and did not achieve the progress we expected,” said Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman. “We believe a coaching change is needed to help build a successful team moving forward.”

There will be a 2:00 p.m. press conference held at the Winter Park Fieldhouse.

This is no surprise, as the Vikings have been making phone calls and following leads to multiple coaches within the last few weeks.  Frazier’s record as the Vikings head coach was 21-33-1.
