Wiki

Leslie Antonio Frazier (born April 3, 1959) is a former cornerback/safety in the National Football League for the Chicago Bears and is currently the head coach for the Minnesota Vikings.

He played college football at Alcorn State University, where he lined up in the defensive secondary next to Roynell Young.

Frazier was a part of the 1985 Chicago Bears team that went on to win Super Bowl XX. During the 1985 championship season, Frazier led the team with 6 interceptions. His career was cut short due to a knee injury he suffered returning a punt in the second quarter of the Super Bowl. He was also a member of the "G Crew" in the video The Super Bowl Shuffle.
