Vikings fire head coach Leslie Frazier


MINNEAPOLIS (WXOW) -- On the heels of their final home game ever at the Metrodome, the Minnesota Vikings fired head coach Leslie Frazier.

Frazier led the Vikings to a 5-10-1 season in 2013, after going 10-6 with a playoff berth just last year. Minnesota struggled finding consistency at the quarterback position alternating between three starters for most of the season.

Frazier ends his tenure with the Vikings going 21-33-1 in more than three seasons. The team announced the firing Monday morning.

In other NFL coaching news:

The Washington Redskins have fired coach Mike Shanahan after a 3-13 season.

Shanahan was dismissed Monday after meeting with team owner Dan Snyder.

Shanahan went 24-40 in four years in Washington, but his greater failure was an inability to restore order and professionalism to a franchise that has often been in disarray for the last two decades.


Rob Chudzinski's dream job turned out to be temporary gig.

The Browns fired Chudzinski on Sunday night after just one season. It was a stunningly swift and shocking exit for the Ohio native who learned all about sports heartbreak while cheering for Cleveland teams as a kid. He wanted to be the one to turn the Browns into consistent winners.
