Anyway, it looks like a new coach has now been selected.
The Vikings will name Philadelphia offensive coordinator Brad Childress to be their next head coach on Friday, according to two persons with knowledge of the coaching search.
Childress, 49, interviewed with the Vikings on Tuesday and was scheduled to talk to the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday; that meeting never took place. Childress’ agent, Bob LaMonte, and Vikings executives were in contract talks late this afternoon. Childress and LaMonte did not return calls today.
I didn't know much about Childress until this week, but from everything I have read he seems like a good choice. There is also some childish satisfaction that comes from taking the guy that the Packers probably wanted to hire.
