Vikings, Leslie Frazier working toward contract extension

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Leslie Frazier will reportedly be rewarded for Minnesota's 2012 season, which could end in a playoff berth, as the Vikings and Frazier are reportedly working toward a contract extension.

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier is one win away from taking his Vikings to the playoffs. According to an NFL.com report, Frazier is going to be rewarded for his fine season, as the Vikings and Frazier are reportedly working toward a contract extension.

Frazier took over as head coach of the Vikings in 2010 after Brad Childress was relieved of his duties as head coach. Frazier went 3-3 as the interim head coach. In January 2011, the Vikings announced Frazier as the permanent head coach -- though the results weren't pretty in Frazier's first full season as a head coach. Minnesota went 3-13 in 2011, leading many to believe that Frazier could be on the hot seat in 2012.

Thanks in large part to Adrian Peterson's remarkable recovery from a gruesome knee injury, the Vikings are 9-6 headed into Week 17 -- and are just one win away from a wild card berth. Frazier's job, consequently, is safe, and the Vikings now could extend the head coach's contract, which is set to expire after the 2013 season.
