Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress has been fired.
Jay Glazer of FOX Sports first reported, and the Vikings have confirmed, that Childress has been fired.
This morning the Vikings announced that Childress would meet the press for his regularly scheduled weekly press conference, which some assumed meant he was safe for at least another week.
But that assumption was incorrect: Childress is out.
Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier has been named the interim head coach for the rest of the 2010 season. Frazier and Vikings owner Zygi Wilf will address the media this afternoon.
