Source: Frazier reconsiders Seahawks interview
By Kevin Seifert
OK, so it turns out we're not done blogging about Leslie Frazier and the Seattle Seahawks. Frazier will interview for Seattle’s head coaching job after all, reports Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune.
Frazier initially turned down the opportunity, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, because Southern California coach Pete Carroll is the heavy favorite for the job. Frazier did not want to serve as a courtesy interview to satisfy NFL rules requiring teams to interview at least one minority candidate for open positions.
Frazier has now agreed, however, and will speak Saturday with Seattle in the Twin Cities, said Zulgad. While Carroll is the leading candidate, Frazier could be second in line if talks break down. The Vikings resume practice Sunday for their Jan. 17 division playoff game.
