Four days after being fired as Vikings head coach, Leslie Frazier is heading to Tampa Bay.

Multiple reports, the first from ESPN, say Frazier has accepted a job as Defensive Coordinator  with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  

Frazier will serve under new Tampa head coach Lovie Smith.

Frazier's son Corey tweeted "I've always been a Tampa bay buccaneers fan!" on Friday evening as confirmation reports flowed.

The Smith-Frazier combo is a reunion of former NFC North Head Coaches.  Smith previously served as Head Coach of the Chicago Bears.
