Former Vikings coach Leslie Frazier might not be out of work very long. A league source said there's a "good chance" that Frazier will become Lovie Smith's defensive coordinator with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Multiple media outlets are reporting tonight that the Bucs have hired Smith as their new head coach. Jason La Canfora of CBSSports first reported that Smith likely will bring Frazier with him as his defensive coordinator. A source confirmed that possibility. The move would make sense, considering their background with the Tampa 2 defense.

Meanwhile, the Vikings will interview Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn on Saturday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
