Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Colts have submitted a request for permission to interview Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier for their vacant head coaching position.
According to Rapoport, Colts owner Jim Irsay is a “big fan” of Frazier.
The Colts have interviews scheduled with:
- assistant HC/TEs coach Dan Campbell
- Eagles OC Frank Reich
- Bills DC Leslie Frazier
Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub has also come up as a potential option for the Colts.
Frazier, 58, played five seasons for the Bears and was part of the 1985 team that won the Super Bowl.
Frazier began his NFL coaching career with the Eagles as their defensive backs coach in 1999. He had brief stints with the Bengals and Colts before the Vikings hired him as their defensive coordinator in 2007.
Frazier worked his way up to head coach and spent three years in the position before he was fired after the 2013 season.
Since then, Frazier has worked for the Buccaneers, Ravens and Bills.
As the Vikings’ head coach, Frazier led them to a record of 21-32-1 (39.8 percent), which includes one playoff appearance.
