The team announced Monday that Frazier had been fired. The Vikings went 4-3-1 in their final eight games, but it wasn't enough.
So what's next?
Every NFL job is attractive, but the Vikings will have bigger challenges than most other openings this offseason. The team doesn't have a solution at quarterback; Cassel is expected to be brought back for 2014. Outside of Adrian Peterson and Cordarrelle Patterson, the roster is uninspiring overall. Left tackle Matt Kalil had a rough second season.
Defensive end Jared Allen is a free agent and is expected to leave town. The linebacker group and secondary have holes everywhere. Minnesota will play in a college stadium the next two seasons before moving into their permanent new home in 2016. The Vikings also are stuck in a division with Aaron Rodgers. Until they find a quarterback, it's going to be an uphill battle.
