Minneapolis - Brad Childress is going to take some time off from football and enjoy the peace and quiet that comes with not having to talk to the media about a crappy football team.
"I am glad the Vikings fired me today, because now I don't have to deal with a bunch of overpaid crybabies.'The coach didn't say nice things about me, the coach didn't call my number, the coach didn't let me dog it on the last play, the coach didn't let me play football my way, and the coach didn't let me come in after training camp.' I won't have to hear those complaints anymore." Brad Childress told reporters.
"I thought I was coaching a bunch of professionals, but I never witness a big bunch of quitters in my life. Guys took plays off or whined because they weren't winning. Well, you know what, play harder you little baby. Oh, I wish I could have said that too some of my ex-players, because they sure as hell didn't play like they cared about winning," Childress added.
"I would also like to tell those wonderful Viking fans that chatted 'fire Childress' during the game on Sunday that they should enjoy the few games they have left to watch Viking games, because the team will move after next season." Childress said as he left the Vikings'complex.
Brad Childress did coach the Vikings to the NFC Championship last year, but after starting three and seven this year, ownership had enough of Childress.
The Vikings named Leslie Frazer as interim head coach.
