Wilfs Say Vikings Coach Leslie Frazier Will Be Around Awhile
The fact that the Wilf family, owners of the Vikings, didn't offer coach Leslie Frazier a contract extension this offseason doesn't mean that they don't have complete confidence in Frazier as a coach. They expect him to coach the Vikings for a long time.
Mark Wilf, owner and president of the Vikings, wanted to make it clear that he expected Frazier to be here a long time, even though only a one-year option was picked up and Frazier wasn't offered the kind of extension Brad Childress, the previous coach under the Wilf family, received.
"I've told you before, we think Leslie is an outstanding coach and we look forward to him being our coach for years to come," said Mark Wilf when asked about Frazier's status with the Vikings.
"Basically he is our coach, and we exercised the option. I mean [we hope he is here for] many years to come, absolutely."
While Frazier hasn't come out publicly and expressed dissatisfaction about not being offered an extension after the Vikings posted a 10-6 record and made the playoffs, there has been media speculation that he expected an extension and was not happy when he didn't get it.
