The Vikings fired  coach Brad Childress on Monday morning and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier will take over as the interim coach.

Childress was fired a day after the Vikings' 31-3 loss to arch-rival Green Bay dropped them to 3-7 on the season. That came a year after the Vikings went 12-4 and made a run to the NFC title game.

Vikings owner Zygi Wilf and Frazier will address the media at 3 p.m. Monday at Winter Park.

The Vikings confirmed the news in a press release.
