Minneapolis, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The Minnesota Vikings have found the team's next permanent head coach in interim coach Leslie Frazier, according to a Minneapolis Star Tribune report.

Frazier took over as the Vikings interim coach after the firing of former head coach Brad Childress, and the team went (3-3) under his control.

After Minnesota's season-ending loss to Detroit, Frazier said nothing was finalized yet but he would like to coach in Minnesota next season and bring the division title back to the Vikings.

The Star Tribune report indicated that final details of the agreement were expected to be worked out sometime Sunday night or on Monday.
