In Leslie Frazier the Vikings have an interim head coach with a wealth of experience and knowledge gained from a successful playing and coaching career at both the college and professional level. Frazier is currently in his 23rd season of coaching, a body of work that includes 12 years on NFL sidelines and 11 years working the college game.
Prior to breaking into the NFL as a member of Andy Reid’s staff with the Philadelphia Eagles in 1999, Frazier got his coaching start at Trinity International University, where he was the program’s head coach from 1988 to 1996. With Frazier being named interim head coach, Trinity International University published a story on its athletics website that is worth a read, in my opinion.
The story gives you an idea of the pride the university has in Frazier, both because of the coach’s accomplishments at the school and also because of how Frazier has handled himself and advanced since leaving the program. Frazier was the founding coach of the TIU Trojan football program in 1988, with the inaugural season taking place in 1989. Frazier led the Trojans to two conference championships during his tenure at TIU.
