Frazier becomes Bucs defensive coordinator

Posted by: Chip Scoggins under Vikings, Leslie Frazier, Leslie Frazier Updated: January 3, 2014 - 8:57 PM

Former Vikings coach Leslie Frazier confirmed via text tonight that he has been hired as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive coordinator. ESPN's Josina Anderson reported it first.

Frazier is joining Lovie Smith's staff. The two have backgrounds in the Tampa 2 defense so it makes sense that Smith would bring Frazier with him on his new staff.

The Vikings fired Frazier on Monday after a 5-10-1 season.
