Vikings owner Zygi Wilf stormed out of locker room after loss

Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf stormed out of the team’s locker room following the 31-3 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday afternoon and declined to comment, leaving the status of coach Brad Childress up in the air.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that while Wilf politely declined to discuss the future of Childress before the game at the Metrodome, his demeanor “changed dramatically” following the loss that dropped the Vikings to 3-7. It was the worst home loss for the Vikings since they were beaten 33-3 by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Dec. 23, 2001, the loss that led to former coach Dennis Green being fired.

Childress said afterward that he spoke with Wilf and his brother Mark Wilf briefly following the game.

“I can't really talk about (my future) because that's not my decision going forward," Childress said. "I'll always do what's best for the Minnesota Vikings to get us ready for the Washington Redskins this week and cleaning up this game film with the guys tomorrow. That's really all I have to say of it."

We’ll see if anything goes down today at the team’s facility in Eden Prairie, Minn.
