Brad Childress apparently isn't in any imminent danger of being fired as the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings, according to owner Zygi Wilf.
The Vikings dropped to 3-6 on the season following a 27-13 loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday, and have now lost nine straight road games.
But Wilf has said that Childress' job is safe...for now.
Just how long Childress has left in Minnesota is the real question.
It's no secret that he's been a ticking time bomb this season. The Vikings have struggled more than anyone expected, and several players are calling for Childress to get the axe.
And barring a miracle turnaround of epic proportions, Childress will be fired.
But who will replace him as head coach of the Vikings?
Will it be a coordinator, a current head coach or one of the numerous Super Bowl-winning coaches who are out of the NFL?
Let's take a look at ten possible replacements, and break down which one has the best odds of becoming the next top dog in Minnesota.
