CBS eyes Brad Childress for NFL Draft commentary
Former Vikings coach Brad Childress was run out of town last November in the wake of a total team collapse punctuated by Brett Favre's bum season and rumored infidelities, and the brief, boneheaded move to bring back Randy Moss.
But Chilly's back -- if you've got a broadband hookup. CBSSports.com has hired him to sit in on a webcast with Dan Fouts and Randy Cross and gab about the NFL Draft, which starts Thursday.
Forget the 2010 mess for a minute. This is the man who drafted Adrian Peterson, Sidney Rice, Brian Robison -- not such bad picks. He tells Sid Hartman that, were he still running the show, he'd be looking for a top offensive lineman. (Former Vikes QB coach Rich Gannon, meanwhile, tells Bob Sansevere the team ought to pick up not one, but two quarterbacks. And tight end Visanthe Shiancoe is working the Donovan McNabb talk.)
But it's Leslie Frazier's show now. The Vikings have the 12th pick in the first round on Thursday. Anyone care to guess what happens?
- Brad Childress fired by Vikings
