After Minnesota’s win in Philadelphia Tuesday night, we heard that the victory proved the Vikings loved playing for interim head coach Leslie Frazier. (So what did the two previous blowouts prove?)
Frazier appears to have the best chance of any current interim coach of getting bumped up to the permanent gig, but at this point that’s mostly speculation. Owner Zygi Wilf hasn’t said anything to the media or to Frazier.
“I’m sure we’ll talk here pretty soon” about his future, Frazier told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. “We’re wrapping the season up now. Hopefully real soon.”
Frazier says he was never told a timeline to talk about his chances and that he’s focused on the team’s final game against the Lions.
The Wilfs had a plan in place when Brad Childress was hired, and moved quickly to get their man. Based on that track record, Frazier should know where he stands early next week.
If the Wilfs don’t want him, we suspect other teams will want to speak with him too.
