A report from PFW's Vikings correspondent Judd Zulgad on the Minneapolis Star-Tribune Web site Wednesday evening said that Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier has told three offensive coaches they will not be retained.

According to Zulgad, QB coach Kevin Rogers, OL coach Pat Morris and assistant OL coach Jim Hueber have all been let go. The team also needs to fill the RB coach role vacated by Eric Bieniemy after he left to be offensive coordinator at the University of Colorado, his alma mater.

For the time being, offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and special-teams coordinator Brian Murphy continue in their respective roles and still could be retained.

With Frazier moving up from the defensive coordinator job, it appears that LB Fred Pagac will be promoted to fill that role. He served as the interim coordinator while Frazier served as interim head coach after Brad Childress was fired.

A possibility for the LB coach job if Pagac is promoted could be ex-49ers head coach Mike Singletary, who is close friends with Frazier dating back to their time together as players in Chicago.
