EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- The Detroit Lions have contacted the Minnesota Vikings about defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier.
Now the Vikings say they expect interest from other teams with head coaching vacancies.
The Lions fired coach Rod Marinelli after he led the team to an NFL-record 0-16 season.
The intensity of preparation for the playoffs and the uncertainty of when the season will end, however, makes talking to Frazier a fluid process.
January can be an awkward time in the NFL, when the scrambling for new coaches collides with the focus of some candidates who have responsibilities with their clubs in the postseason.
If the Vikings beat the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, they'll play the following Saturday against the Carolina Panthers. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
