Brad Childress Releases Statement on Firing

Brad Childress has put out his official statement on being fired as head coach of the Minnesota Vikings:

The past five years have been a tremendous experience for my family and I as the Head Coach of the Minnesota Vikings. I have a great respect for the players and coaches who I have worked with and for their dedication to each other and to the organization. I am proud of our accomplishments and believe the foundation of this football team is stronger today than when I became Head Coach in 2006. I appreciate the opportunity that Zygi, Mark, and the whole Wilf family afforded me and wish them success as they move forward.

His unofficial statement included more curse words.
