When news of Pete Carroll’s dalliance with the Seattle Seahawks first broke, it didn’t take long for ESPN to report that Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier declined a chance to interview with the Seahawks.
Frazier has apparently changed his mind.
Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier will interview for the Seahawks job in Minneapolis Saturday, according to Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
Frazier may have initially balked at the interview because it appeared that it was only being conducted to get Rooney Rule requirements out of the way.
While many will criticize this as a “sham” interview, that ignores the reality that a deal between Carroll and the Seahawks could still fall apart for a variety of reasons.
Frazier is allowed to interview for jobs this week only because the Vikings are on a bye. He interviewed for the Bills head coaching job Thursday.
