The news that Leslie Frazier was scheduled to interview Josh McDaniels and Mike Singletary to possibly join the Vikings' coaching staff is a sign of great security by a first-year head coach. Surely, the Vikings have taken notice of the Bears' success this season, winning the division with four one-time head coaches on their staff. But the difference in Minnesota is that Frazier has only six games of interim head-coaching experience under his belt. The fact that Frazier wants to surround himself with very experienced coaches is a sign of great maturity, too, as the Vikings likely will be going through a transition period next season. But it also shows Frazier wants to change directions offensively, away from the West Coast system that Brad Childress ran and, if they go with McDaniels, more of a pro-style spread attack. That almost certainly would signal a change in the type of quarterback they go after and would make retaining WR Sidney Rice even more of a priority, perhaps.
