Childress Deal Expected To Be Announced Soon

With the second half of the season officially underway, the coaching carousel is less two months away from spinning wildly again.

Vikings coach Brad Childress is one coach that doesn't have to worry about his job status anymore.  A long-anticipated contract extension is reportedly coming "soon" according to Clark Judge of CBS Sports.  Sources tell judge there are no major obstacles left and an announcement is expected.

Childress is expected to double his current $2 million salary after extension talks that lost some momentum around the team's bye week, but has reportedly picked up lately.

We can't help but think of Jon Gruden's comments on Monday Night Football when he said that Brett Favre creates jobs for coaches that work for him.

In Childress' case, Favre is allowing Childress to get a big second contract to keep his job.



 

A few more years of Mr. Noodle?  Can't say I'm thrilled, but I also can't deny the marked improvement of the Vikings over the past three years.  Whether it is attributed to the front office, the coaching staff, the players on the field, or a combination of all three, the Chilly-lead Vikes have become a legit SB contender.
