What was a foregone conclusion following a surprising playoff season has come to pass. The Vikings and head coach Leslie Frazier have agreed on a multi-year contract extension, a team source has confirmed.
The agreement, which was first reported by the Associated Press, comes as Frazier was heading into the last year of his contract. He is 16-23, including 0-1 in the playoffs, since replacing the fired Brad Childress with six games left in the 2010 season.
Frazier's 3-3 record as an interim coach during that disastrous 2010 season earned him the full-time post heading into the 2011 NFL lockout. After finishing 3-13 in his first full season, Frazier led the Vikings to a 10-6 record that virtually no one saw coming for a rebuilding NFC North team that had an unproven quarterback.
