ESPN is reporting that the Minnesota Vikings have fired head coach Leslie Frazier.

In a statement, owner Zygi Wilf said:

We have tremendous respect and appreciation for Leslie and what he has done for the Minnesota Vikings. He stepped in and established a strong positive culture here and he has been the consummate professional as our head coach and in this community. Making this change is difficult, but what we determined is best for the organization.

The Vikings finished the 2013 season Sunday a one-point win over the Detroit Lions, but still finished the season 5-10-1, the second last place finish in the NFC North in the last three years.

Frazier posted a 21-32-1 record in his three-plus seasons with Minnesota.
