Report: Vikings will hire Leslie Frazier

According to Chip Scoggins of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Leslie Frazier is officially the next Vikings head coach, and his interim tag will be lifted this week.

It’s a hire that most in the NFL would agree is well-deserved for the longtime assistatnt coach. Frazier has toiled as a defensive coordinator for the Bengals and Vikings, and when Brad Childress was fired in November, Frazier was given the interim tag.

Since then, despite crazy weather conditions that forced a postponement of their game two weeks in a row, despite all the craziness surrounding Brett Favre and despite having to start a sixth-round pick at QB who was not actually drafted as a QB, Frazier has led Minnesota to a 3-2 record heading into today’s game vs. Detroit.

Now, he’ll get the chance to make his team his own.

Report: Vikings will hire Leslie Frazier

According to Forbes - 9 of the top 20 highest paid athletes are white.  4 were Hispanic plus a couple more mixed.  The rest were black.

If you look at the top ten in Men’s weekly.5 were white, 2 Hispanic, two black and one mixed (Yes Tiger is mixed - he is not black).

You know what Tiredofcrap2 - Frazier has earned the head coaching spot, but if teams are required to interview a black coach before they can hire then should also be required to interview white one.  From what I've read previously, coaching candidates learn allot just from the interview experience.  Why should a white guy get this opportunity?

Frazier isn't the answer, Minnesota will be just as bad again next year.

So the Vikings can hire from within their organization, but Dallas can't do the same?  Ahh the Rooney Rule at its finest again.  I hope Ray Sherman enjoys his sham interview.
