As the Vikes prepare for the Lions, the Lions prepare for the future without Steve Mariucci.

The Vikings head into Detroit next weekend to take on the struggling Lions, who will be without head coach Steve Mariucci.

VU has been told this morning that the team will announce today that Mariucci has been fired. He will likely be replaced in-house by former Bears head coach Dick Jauron.

VU will follow up on this story with our next update.
