Report: Brad Childress Fired by Vikings


The Vikings have finally had enough with head coach Brad Childress.

Childress was fired Monday morning, according to Fox Sports, and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier has been named interim head coach.

Minnesota lost to Green Bay 31-3 at home on Sunday. The 28-point defeat was the most lopsided loss of the season for Childress and the Vikes, who fell to 3-7.

The Vikings have won just once in their last five games — a 27-24 overtime win over the Cardinals (now 3-7) at home in Week 9. Despite having an explosive cast of offensive threats, the team is averaging just 17.2 points per game, which puts them in a tie for the third-worst offense in the NFL.
