Leslie Frazier's Just Not That Into U

After being rumored to have interest in the Minnesota Golden Gophers’ head coaching job a few weeks ago, Minnesota Vikings’ defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier has effectively withdrawn his name from the running, according to Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

“At this stage of my career I kind of like what we’re doing in the NFL,” Frazier said. “So we’ll see what happens.”

Frazier’s name was one of the first names mentioned after Tim Brewster was fired last month.

Frazier has interviewed for six NFL head coaching jobs since becoming the Vikings’ defensive coordinator, but has yet to spear his proverbial great white whale.

Of course, he might not have the burden of the whole “Vikings being in the playoffs” thing he’s had to deal with the last two years, so maybe he’ll have a better shot this time around. . .if the Vikings keep playing the way they’re playing, that is.
