  • Vikings Fire Tice!

    MINNEAPOLIS (Jan. 1, 2006) -- The Minnesota Vikings fired coach Mike Tice after a season-ending victory over Chicago on Jan. 1.

    The team announced that owner Zygi Wilf would not renew Tice's contract less than an hour after the Vikings' 34-10 win over the Bears in the regular season finale. Tice, who finished his fourth full season with a 32-32 record, had already addressed the media before the move was made public.

    His tenure was mostly marked by streaks and scandals, with a $100,000 fine levied last summer against him by the league for scalping his Super Bowl tickets and a wild boat party during the team's bye week this season that produced misdemeanor charges for four players.

    After starting 2-5, the Vikings won six straight before losing two in a row to fall out of contention for the playoffs.

    A bit rough in my opinion.

      Thanks for the link. Seems a lot of coaches are bieng fired.

      Question is, why fire him right after the game? Vikings organization is like messed up. The owner guy also said that he wasn't going to fire him.....

        I think given the way the team started, and the injury to Daunte, and the way the players behave, Tice has done a good job with Johson. They wiped the floor with Cincy!

        Coaches are all moving!

        Vermeil 'retires'(before they can fire his crying butt)

        Capers (97% certain)

        Norv (should have gone long ago)

        Martz looks to be getting the boot on Monday

        Sherman will be crossing everything crossable!

          Hi, Denver Broncos fans! Vikings still fired Mike Tice even after beating the Bears 34-10 at the Metrodome. Here's the local link from the Minneapolis Star-Tribune:
