MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minnesota Vikings announced that Leslie Frazier will not return as head coach for the much-beleaguered football team next season.

The announcement came via Twitter Monday morning, following the team’s season-ending win against the Detroit Lions.

“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,” Vikings owner Zygi Wilf said in a statement. “Making this change is difficult, but what we determined is best for the organization.”

“Unfortunately, we did not achieve consistent success and did not achieve the progress we expected,” Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman added. “We believe a coaching change is needed to help build a successful team moving forward.”

A press conference has been scheduled for 2 p.m. at Winter Park.
