Frazier mum on head coach gigs

He’s interviewed for seven head coaching posts in the last three years, and the sixth was just filled by Pete Carroll in Seattle. So you can understand why Leslie Frazier wasn’t about to talk about himself, the Rooney Rule or his credentials when he addressed the Minnesota media Thursday.

According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Frazier was asked if he thought the interview he got from the Seahawks was legit or if it was done to satisfy the Rooney Rule, as Carroll was hired a day after Frazier met with Seattle executives. He chose to focus on the Vikings game against the Cowboys this weekend.

He was also asked what he thought about being reported as the frontrunner for the Bills head coaching post. Here was his response.

“I don’t put much credence in anything I hear, brother,” said Frazier. “Believe me. I don’t care who says top candidate. This or that. It doesn’t mean anything to me.” 

After being passed over half a dozen times for coaching gigs who can blame him?
