The Vikings are struggling in Detroit on Sunday, but interim head coach Leslie Frazier has a reason to smile.

Jay Glazer of FOX reports that Frazier will be back with the team next year as head coach. Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune confirms that Frazier has agreed to take the job.

Frazier met with Vikings brass for more than five hours on Friday about his future. It looks like those talks were very productive, and Frazier’s future will be in Minnesota.
