Vikes request to interview Colts coach

Leslie Frazier and the Vikings would like to speak to Colts DB coach Alan Williams about their defensive coordinator post:

The Minnesota Vikings continued their search for a defensive coordinator on Monday, requesting permission to interview Indianapolis Colts defensive backs coach Alan Williams.

NFL Network first reported the story and indicated the interview should take place on Tuesday morning.

Williams, 42, has been in his current capacity for the past 10 seasons. He worked with Vikings coach Leslie Frazier in Indianapolis in 2005 and 2006, when Frazier also helped with the Colts defensive backs and served as a special assistant to then-coach Tony Dungy.

Williams becomes the latest candidate to replace Fred Pagac, who was reportedly stripped of his coordinator duties on Friday and offered the chance to return to coaching the Vikings linebackers as he did from 2006 to 2010.

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
