Source: Vikings to interview Jay Gruden for coaching spot

MINNEAPOLIS - A person with knowledge of the process tells The Associated Press that the Minnesota Vikings have asked to interview Cincinnati offensive coordinator Jay Gruden for their head coach vacancy.

The person spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because the team has not made information about the search public.

The Vikings fired Leslie Frazier last week and will be making their third head coach hire in eight years. They have competition for Gruden, though. He's the younger brother of former NFL head coach and current ESPN game analyst Jon Gruden. The person said Detroit, Tennessee and Washington have also requested permission to speak to Gruden.
