As expected, Minnesota fired coach Leslie Frazier on Monday morning after the team finished 5-10-1 this season. It was the second losing season in Frazier’s three years on the job. He initially took over as the interim coach in 2010, leading the team to a 3-3 record. The Vikings made the playoffs last season, but regressed badly this season amid inconsistent play at quarterback.
