Leslie Frazier, Interim Head Coach of the Minnesota Vikings, indicated that he will be meeting with the team’s owners next week after the conclusion of the season. The speculation is that the Wilfs will at least indicate their intent as it pertains to Frazier’s long-term role with the Vikings.
Leslie Frazier has stated emphatically that he would like to stay in Minnesota. He’s indicated that currently he’s focused on beating Detroit and that he’s not worried about whether or not he’ll be the head coach.
Previously I had predicted that if Leslie Frazier were able to show that he could motivate the team and end his 6 game audition at 3-3 at least, it was likely he’d be a lock for the role. A lot of things have happened since that prediction. Rumors of the Wilfs reaching out to Bill Parcells. More uncertainty around the CBA negotiations.
After the team’s performance in the Giants & Bears games, I lost some of my faith in Leslie. However, maybe a collapsing stadium roof, relocation of a game to Detroit and swirl around game location the following week was far more adversity than any coach could handle. I don’t know. I’m still watching though with a critical eye.
What do you think? Should Leslie Frazier be the Head Coach?
