Just one season after leading the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC championship game, where they were just a few plays from the Super Bowl, the Vikings have chosen to part ways with head coach Brad Childress.

The Vikings, who are 3-7 were many analysts pick for the Super Bowl this season with the return of Brett Favre.  But the team has struggled to put anything together and is effectively out of the playoff hunt after a 31-3 beat down at the hands of the rival Green Bay Packers.

Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier will take over as head coach for the rest of the season on a interim basis.

Known for his offensive  mind, Childress will likely not be out of work long next season, but it remains doubtful that he will take the reigns of a franchise after this season unraveled around him.

Too bad the Vikings can’t fire Brett Favre who has proven this year that his best football is way, way behind him.
