    Is Childress on his way out possibly this week???

    This is unsubstantiated information so take it or leave it but, I just read a post on another site (ANTSPORTS.com) and according to what was said, a sorce close to zygi has leaked information that a buyout of Childress contract could come as early as this week. If so, L. Frazier would take over the head coach position for the rest of the year. The reason given for the possible buyout was the ownerships displeasure with Childress ability to motivate the team, his record since becoming head coach and his public relations problem with the fans and press. Could it be? Again this is unsubstantiated but it sure sounds good to me.

    Just rumors at this point. I believe the Wilf's will give Childress one more season to put a winner on the field.

    Nothing but a rumor at this point.
    This isn't a reputed news source, just a message board like PP.O

    Childress Out?

    A source close to Vikings' owner Zygi Wilf has indicated that Wilf is contemplating buying out the remainder of current head coach Brad Childress' contract. The buyout would elevate current defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier to head coach for the remainder of this season. Wilf is said to be displeased not only with Childress' on-field results but also with the second-year coach's lack of appeal among the fan base. The move could come as early as this week.

    If true, the move to Frazier likely would provide the rookie defensive coordinator an opportunity to audition for the full-time position of head coach. Though the performance of the Vikings' defense has been mixed in 2007, Frazier has proven much more comfortable speaking to the media than has Childress, providing straight answers to clear questions and offering insight where Childress has refused to do so.

    The move to Frazier, a move that would have been more popular prior to last week's defensive collapse at Green Bay, would nevertheless fare the team no worse than where it currently stands under a coaching regime that appears lost in time.

    More updates to follow.
    No sources at all are listed.
    Don't get your hopes up yet.

    This would be the best news this season. I highly doubt it's gonna happen though.

    I'm sure it's the same rumor from the Vikes_Geek guy yesterday that PFT irresponsibly picked up on and ran as gospel, even though no actual sources are cited.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
