Minnesota Vikings Hire Mike Zimmer As Head Coach

ESPN is reporting that the Minnesota Vikings will hire Mike Zimmer as their new head coach.

Zimmer was previously Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator for the last five seasons.

After a 5-10-1 season which originally had high hopes for a Super Bowl run, the team fired head coach Lezlie Frazier.

Zimmer had also worked for the Atlanta Falcons and Dallas Cowboys in the NFL. This will be his first head coaching position.
