Brad Childress‘ firing may have been bad for Brad Childress – and the five Viking fans who were still on his side – but it has been undeniably great for a couple of the guys who served under him. First Leslie Frazier got the big promotion from defensive coordinator to head coach, and now linebackers coach Fred Pagac has gotten his own bump up to defensive coordinator.
And what can I tell you about Fred Pagac as a coach? We have good linebackers so he must be good. Beyond that, I don’t really know what to say. I doubt his approach will deviate much from what now-head coach Leslie Frazier was doing before, meaning the Cover-2 will still be in place, and there won’t be much blitzing. But who knows? Maybe Pagac has a little more aggressiveness in him, and will be able to convince Frazier to take a few more chances.
