Minneapolis, MN (WDAY TV) - If you're searching for an answer as to why the Vikings fired head coach Leslie Frazier, look no further than this stat.

Frazier's defense allowed 30 points per game this season, last in the NFL, not good for a guy that claims defense as his specialty.

Monday, owner Zygi Wilf and GM Rick Spielman made the news official, cutting Frazier loose after 3-plus seasons as Vikings head coach, ending with a 5 win season in 2013.

Rick Spielman/Vikings GM: “Road record has not been the best, the way we lost some games this year. But I think it's taking that whole body of work and digging down and analyzing everything to try and make this difficult decision.”

The Vikings will be on the hook for about 2.5 million dollars to pay the last year of Frazier's contract.
