Earlier today, we told you that the Minnesota Vikings reached terms on a contract extension with head coach Leslie Frazier. While some are reporting it as a "long-term" extension, it doesn't appear as though that's a case.
The following is from a press release that was sent out by Vikings' Director of Corporate Communications Jeff Anderson:
The Minnesota Vikings have exercised the 4th-year option for Head Coach Leslie Frazier for the 2014 NFL season. Frazier finished his second full season as the Vikings head coach in 2012 with a seven-win improvement from 2011, going from 3-13 to 10-6 and earning a Wild Card Playoff berth. The seven-win jump is the biggest single-season turnaround in Vikings history.
Frazier finished tied for 3rd in the 2012 Associated Press Coach of the Year voting and was recognized with a Fritz Pollard Alliance Salute to Excellence Award during Super Bowl XLVII week activities. He became the eighth head coach in Vikings history after taking over the club on an interim basis for the final six games of 2010, finishing 3-3 in that time.
