Coach Childress on the Hot Seat?


Team owner Zygi Wilf spent a second day at the Minnesota Vikings' practice facility on Thursday, watching practice, talking with coach Brad Childress and several veteran players, and even eating lunch in the team's cafeteria.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported, according to NFL sources, that Wilf's discussions with quarterback Brett Favre, guard Steve Hutchinson and defensive linemen Jared Allen, Kevin Williams and Pat Williams included the topic of Childress.

Wilf declined interview requests, but the newspaper reported the owner was displeased with how Childress handled the release of wide receiver Randy Moss -- not utilizing team protocols -- but perhaps not with the decision to release Moss, who skewered the Vikings' coaching staff during a postgame rant last Sunday.

Wilf could be seen talking with Childress during Thursday's practice, and the coach is aware Wilf also has talked to a cross-section of players. What impact that has remains to be seen.

"You'd have to talk to those people," Childress said.
