The Associated Press is reporting that the Vikings picked up the option on head coach Leslie Frazier's contract.

Frazier, who led the Vikings to a 10-6 record and an NFC playoff appearance this past year, was entering the final year of his deal, but the option keeps him under contract with the team through the 2014 season.

“Coach Frazier has done a remarkable job in building a strong foundation for the Minnesota Vikings and creating a very positive future,” Vikings president Mark Wilf said. “We value his leadership and look forward to working with him for many years to come.”

Frazier took over for the fired Brad Childress with six games to go in the 2010 season. He is 16-22 in the regular season since then.

So far, reaction to the move is fairly positive. Vikings Age blogger Dan Zinski writes Frazier "...steered the ship through rough waters. He remained unruffled. No matter how bad things got, he kept his composure..."

And from NBCSports.com: "Frazier’s calm approach was appropriate for a team with a young quarterback, which exceeded every fair expectation last year, and today he was rewarded for it."
