A couple of former Vikings' coaches are in the news today.
It had been reported that Josh McDaniels to the St. Louis Rams was all but a done deal. However, it appears that might not be the case.
Minnesota Vikings' coach Leslie Frazier appears to be making some changes in the coaching staff. He has told offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and special teams coach Brian Murphy that they're "free to look for other jobs."
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."
