Columbus native Leslie Frazier has been officially named as the Head coach of the Minnesota Vikings. Frazier had been promoted to interim head coach late this season after head coach Brad Childress was fired. Frazier accepted a contract this morning to become the 8th head coach of the Vikings.
Frazier was born in Columbus, and was a stand out athlete at Lee High. He went on to play at Alcorn state and with the Superbowl champion Chicago Bears. Frazier coached under Andy Reid and Tony Dungee before becoming the defensive coordinator at Minnesota.
