Any GM or owner that hires any head coach as a stopgap is an idiot. That is especially the case when the top players on the team are already veterans. Wilf needing to pay Childress and any new head coach may have pressed the ownership to hire on the cheap.

I can't remember a HC hire with the Vikings that I was more exited about.
I agree. This hiring makes more sense than both Childress, who did not actually coordinate the offense he was coordinating, and Frazier, who ran a poor defense in Minnesota before being promoted.
