Eden Prairie, MN (February 13, 2013) – 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.


“Coach Frazier has done a remarkable job in building a strong foundation for the Minnesota Vikings and creating a very positive future,” said Vikings Owner/President Mark Wilf. “We value his leadership and look forward to working with him for many years to come.”
