Childress close to contract extension with Vikings

Vikings coach Brad Childress and the team are very close on a multi-year contract extension, according to a league source.

The parties have been working on a contract for a while and agreed to the primary tenets of the deal, according to the source. The pact should be finalized and announced soon.

Childress, a driving force behind bringing QB Brett Favre to the Vikings this year, has improved his record every season with the team and reached the playoffs in 2008.

The Vikings are sitting comfortably atop the NFC North this season at 8-1, and the extension with Childress likely will be announced before the playoffs.
