After a magical run to last season's NFC Championship Game and a 12-4 mark, everything fell apart for the Vikings this season, from injuries to Brett Favre's ineffectiveness to the defense collapsing and just about everything else that you possibly think could go wrong. After two thoroughly embarrassing losses to divisional opponents. . .a 27-13 loss to Chicago that wasn't THAT close and the 31-3 stomping at the hands of Green Bay. . .Vikings' owner Zygi Wilf had apparently seen enough, and decided that today was the day to cut ties with the head coach.

We'll have more updates on this throughout the day at SBNation Minnesota, and be sure to check out our friends at The Daily Norseman for more news as well.
