The article reports that the football team Minnesota Vikings has hired Brad Childress as head coach. Childress was the offensive coordinator for the team Philadelphia Eagles. Childress will make good use of that championship-proven playbook with Minnesota. He will give his players a fair shake. He will put them in position to win. And perhaps above all, he'll be the face of a franchise that needs to start over.
