The Minnesota Vikings are conducting their first head coach search in eight years, and the process is setting up to be an exhaustive one.
    
After Leslie Frazier was fired on Monday, general manager Rick Spielman says he's identified 13 different categories of potential replacements. He says he won't be "boxed in" to any type.
    
He also told team owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf to clear their schedules for the coming weeks.
    
This will be Spielman's first head coach hire. The Wilfs fired Brad Childress in 2010 and replaced him with Frazier, who was already on the staff. That was before Spielman was promoted to general manager.
