Frazier steers clear of Bills questions

SHARE Frazier steers clear of Bills questions

Former Bears cornerback Leslie Frazier certainly didn’t hurt his cause to become an NFL head coach.

His Minnesota Vikings defense dominated in a 34-3 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

Frazier, the Vikings defensive coordinator, interviewed for the Buffalo Bills head-coaching vacancy, the only job available right now.

After Sunday’s game, though, Frazier did all he could to avoid talking about anything other than the Vikings.

Asked if he’s heard from the Bills, Frazier said, “You know.

“The only thing I’m really focused on right now is the NFC Championship game. In the meantime, enjoy this for a little bit then on Monday we got to get ready for that NFC Championship game.”

At that point, my former Pioneer Press colleague Bob Sansevere noted that the game certainly didn’t hurt his resume, Frazier again switched gears and added, “Yeah, the most important thing now is to get our guys ready for that next one.”

I wondered earlier today if Frazier might even consider the Bears defensive coordinator job. But, I’m told that Frazier is under contract with the Vikings through the 2010 season, so he’ll return to Minnesota if he doesn’t get the Bills job.
