Default Vikings fire vice president of player personnel

MINNEAPOLIS -- Fran Foley, the Minnesota Vikings' vice president of player personnel, was fired by the team on Wednesday more than a week after acknowledging there were inaccuracies on the resume he presented to the team when he was hired in January.

The Vikings made the announcement in a one sentence statement. Owner Zygi Wilf declined to comment on the decision after a Wednesday afternoon news conference at Capitol, where the team is trying to secure public funding for a new stadium.

Foley signed a three-year contract with Minnesota on Jan. 26, coming over from the San Diego Chargers. But he admitted to several inaccuracies on the resume he provided the team, including his early work history and exaggerating his playing career at Framingham State College.

Foley was part of a three-way executive structure that included coach Brad Childress and vice president of football operations Rob Brzezinski. He had just finished helping direct the team's draft.

On a resume given to the Vikings, Foley said that he held coaching positions with the Citadel, Rutgers and Colgate when he was actually a graduate assistant at all three schools.

He also said that he played four seasons at Framingham State, when he only played two.

The team issued a revised biography for Foley last month.

they traded 2 3rds for pittsburghs 2nd. yet they spent a 2nd for center r. cook who was projected as about a 5th rounder. trading their 2nd and 2 3rds possibly couldve moved them back into the 1st to take mangold. someone dropped the ball.
