Currently riding a 3-9-1 record, it’s been another disappointing season for the Minnesota Vikings. That will likely lead to the firing of head coach Leslie Frazier, as NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport suggested Sunday morning the chances of Frazier returning to the Vikings next season are ‘grim’:

As for #Vikings coach Leslie Frazier… we’re told his prospects for returning for 2014 are grim. His seat in white hot.

Frazier did experience a solid 2012 campaign with the Vikings, posting a 10-6 record. However, it’s been a relatively woeful four plus year stretch at the helm of the organization as Frazier holds a 19-31-1 record, good for a .382 winning percentage. Granted, the struggles of the franchise certainly are far greater than then coaching of Frazier, tough he’ll be touted as the scapegoat.

Of course, it’s not all bad for Frazier as the Vikings exercised their 2014 team option on the head coach meaning he’ll be paid, no matter if he’s on the sidelines next season or not.

The Vikings are expected to finish out the season under Frazier before any decisions are made.
