Former Vikings coach Leslie Frazier, fired only a week ago, officially has a new job. The Buccaneers on Monday night announced new coach Lovie Smith had hired Frazier as his defensive coordinator.

“I have a tremendous amount of respect for Leslie Frazier and I consider myself very fortunate to have him on my staff,” Smith said in a statement. “Leslie is one of the best defensive coaches in the NFL and he has a long track record of helping players reach their full potential. He transformed Minnesota's defense into one of the league's elite units during his time there and I look forward to working with him to do the same here in Tampa Bay.”
