BREAKING: Vikings fire HC Leslie Frazier
Today is Monday. More specifically, today is Black Monday. A day that is infamous in NFL history for being a day that team owners and general managers fire their head coaches for poor seasons (and a few solid ones see: Lovie Smith in 2012 who took the Bears to a 10-6 record but was still fired).
One of the first names to be officially fired today was Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier.
Vikings announced Leslie Frazier will not return.

Frazier lead the Vikings to a 5-10-1 record in 2013 a year after leading them to the promised land of the playoffs (although many fans and analysts will tell you that was more to do with Adrian Peterson’s almost-record-breaking, MVP-winning season than anything Frazier did).
His overall record as the Vikings head coach was 21-32-1 in three seasons.
