Brad Childress Issues Statement

Relieved of his coaching duties today, Brad Childress issued the following the statement through his former employer:

"The past five years have been a tremendous experience for my family and I as the Head Coach of the Minnesota Vikings. I have a great respect for the players and coaches who I have worked with and for their dedication to each other and to the organization. I am proud of our accomplishments and believe the foundation of this football team is stronger today than when I became Head Coach in 2006. I appreciate the opportunity that Zygi, Mark, and the whole Wilf family afforded me and wish them success as they move forward."

Wilf was fired after Sunday's 31-3 to the Green Bay Packers, dropping the Vikings to 3-7 on a season that began with legitimate Super Bowl aspirations.

Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier has been named the interim head coach.
