The Minnesota Vikings' offense finally belongs to its coordinator.
The Vikings fired Childress on Monday and replaced him on an interim basis with defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, who is expected to play a far less intrusive role than his predecessor on Bevell's side of the ball.
"Every play went through Coach Childress and everything was finalized through him," Bevell said on Friday, in his first session with reporters since Childress' dismissal.
"So, this week (in game planning), it was a little bit different. I still kept Coach Frazier informed, told him what we were doing, how we felt like we should attack them. But it wasn't like, 'I don't like that, throw that out' or 'I like this, put that in.' There wasn't any of that."
