Brad Childress: Vikings Head Coach Finally Fired After Miserable Start
Brad Childress appears to have finally reached the end of his rope in Minnesota. The embattled Vikings coach is going to be fired, according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.
Childress' job status has been a hot topic in the NFL for much of this season, as the talented Vikings stumbled badly out of the gate. The Vikes, who had Super Bowl aspirations heading into the season, have gone 3-7, and are all but eliminated from the playoffs at this point.
To make matters worse, Childress has lost the respect of most of his team, thanks to his dictatorial leadership style. He's angered owner Zygi Wilf multiple times with his unilateral decisions that often fly in the face of what Wilf wants for the club. He's been known to lie to the media on occasion, most recently when he told reporters he had given former wideout Randy Moss permission to stay in New England to visit family, when in fact the receiver had simply refused to board the plane with the team.
Apparently, the last straw came in the Vikes' pathetic showing against the rival Packers on Sunday. Minnesota managed just three points and looked sloppy across the board, as Green Bay routed them 31-3.
