Brad Childress is gone, one season after he famously picked up Brett Favre at the airport, got a contract extension and came within a field goal of reaching the Super Bowl.

The Minnesota Vikings fired Childress on Monday, ending an eventful and often tumultuous run with the team marred recently by player unrest, livid fans and an angry boss over everything from his abrupt decisions to a 3-7 start.

Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, who has interviewed seven times for NFL head coaching jobs, will serve as interim coach for the remainder of the season. Frazier and owner Zygi Wilf, who stormed out of the locker room after Minnesota’s 31-3 loss at home to rival Green Bay on Sunday, were scheduled to talk with reporters at 4 p.m. ET.
