Sounds like Leslie Frazier finally got his meeting with Vikings owner Zygi Wilf. Minnesota’s interim head coach is hoping to become Minnesota’s 2011 head coach. According to Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune, that could happen as soon as Sunday.

Zulgad says Wilf and Frazier have held serious discussions, and “it is believed Frazier could receive a contract in the neighborhood of three years. Wilf has declined interview requests in recent weeks to discuss the coaching situation.”

The Vikings were 3-7 when Frazier took over. A win at Detroit would give them a 4-2 record under the former defensive coordinator.

I'm not being racist, the Rooney rule is racist.  If the NFL requires that a black candidate be interviewed, then why should a white man not be interviewed for the position?  It's things like affirmative action and the Rooney rule that are holding people back, not me.  Racism can work both ways ya know.

to my knowledge the rooney rule was to force teams to interview a minority for the head coaching job and considering frazier is a minority there might not be a need to have interviews, but i could be wrong

How sad is it that in todays world we still have people that have to use a persons color. If the media would stop using race I think it would go along way and keep others from using it. First black this and first white that.....nice to have pride but how about being a proud human?? or American?? As for Fraiser....love to see him coach my Vikings!

Wouldn't they be required to interview a white candidate for the job first?
