    Colts lose first Asst. coach.....

    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Leslie Frazier became the first assistant coach to leave the Super Bowl champion Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, accepting the job as defensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings.

    A special assistant to Colts coach Tony Dungy and also in charge of the team's defensive backs, Frazier couldn't interview for the position until after the Super Bowl.

    Frazier, Cincinnati's defensive coordinator for two years before joining the Colts in 2005, worked with Vikings coach Brad Childress when the two were on staff in Philadelphia. Frazier was defensive backs coach for the Eagles from 1999-2002.

    He is the seventh defensive coordinator Minnesota has had over the last nine seasons. Mike Tomlin left after a year to become the coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Frazier played six seasons in the NFL, all with the Chicago Bears from 1981-86. His career ended after he tore a knee ligament in the 1986 Super Bowl.

    What a mistake. Colts were probably happy to let him go.

    Frazier already failed as a DC. Your telling that is the best the Vikings could do?

    Can't imagine why he would want to leave, they were probably going to let him go anyway.
