Vikings Look to be one of the Coaching Staffs headed for 2012 Senior Bowl

No official announcement has been made regarding Senior Bowl NFL Coaching Staffs as assigned by the National Football League, but sources close to the team feel that it is a foregone conclusion that Leslie Frazier will take his soon-to-be-reassembled Vikings staff to Mobile, AL at the end of the month to coach one of the All-Star squads.
This should put any shuffling of position coaches and new coordinators into immediate focus. The stand-out candidates for getting canned are DC Fred Pagac and DL Coach Karl Dunbar, who has already told certain players he will not be returning. Assistant HC/LBs Mike Singletary is a close friend of Frazier, but has acted in a very non-Mike-Singletary manner this season, consistently missing meetings and shirking responsibility. I do not think he will be a DC candidate, and might be told to get his act together if he wants to keep his current job. Frazier is on a hot-seat himself. Super hot. No favors for friends at this point.
ESPN Twin Cities is reporting that “(Frazier) is so convinced (the Vikings will be coaching one of the Senior Bowl Squads) that he asked offensive line coach Jeff Davidson to delay hip-replacement surgery.” (Until after the week starting Jan. 23rd)
