Leslie Frazier Not Concerned About Job Status As Minnesota Vikings Head Coach

Leslie Frazier has led the Minnesota Vikings to a dismal 2-12 record through the first 14 games of the NFL regular season. The veteran coordinator, in his first season as the Vikings' head coach after taking over for Brad Childress last season, isn't worried that the Vikings record is going to hurt his job status.

Frazier needs the Vikings to win their final two games -- against the Washington Redskins on Christmas Eve and the Chicago Bears on New Year's Day -- to ensure the team doesn't end up with its worst-ever record, but he told 1500 ESPN that he isn't concerned about his employment.

"I'm really not. I'm really not (concerned)," Frazier said. "I know what we're trying to get done, (and I'm) really optimistic about the future, as difficult and as crazy as that may sound. I think I have a good idea of what we need to do to not be in this situation in the future. No, I'm not concerned about 2012 at this point other than the Washington Redskins in 2011. That is really where the focus has to be."

That is probably the right answer, but it's a question that will likely be brought up a few more times before the end of the Vikings season.
