The Vikings are expected to lift the interim tag and name Leslie Frazier their permanent head coach sometime this week, according to the Star Tribune.

Talks with Frazier and the Vikings heated up on Saturday, and the team is expected to name him their head coach going forward either Monday or Tuesday.

Frazier took over the job from Brad Childress, who was fired following a 3-7 start. The Vikings won their first two games following the change but also lost their next two after that. The Vikings' upset over the Eagles has Frazier's mark sitting at 3-2 entering Sunday's game against the Lions.

The Vikings have endured one of the longest, strangest seasons of their 50-year existence. Everything from Brett Favre's disappointing return to injuries to the Randy Moss trade and the logistical nightmare following the Metrodome roof collapsing has made this season miserable for all the wrong reasons.

But Frazier has calmed the ship a bit and appears to have the Vikings headed in the right direction.
