League Source: Minnesota Vikings to Hire Mike Zimmer as New Head Coach

Getty Images Sport

Cincinnati Bengals Defensive Coordinator Mike Zimmer has been the frontrunner among candidates for the vacancy at head coach left when the Minnesota Vikings fired Leslie Frazier at the end of the regular season. Following a second interview yesterday (Tuesday, January 14), a deal appears to be in the works.

Sources reported that Zimmer remained in Minneapolis following yesterday’s interview with Vikings staff and ownership. To many, this signalled the team may be looking to work out a deal with the Bengals coordinator.

This morning, ESPN’s Kevin Seifert reported that a league source with knowledge of the situation says the Minnesota Vikings plan to hire Zimmer.


ESPN’s Chris Mortensen further confirmed what many anticipated, reporting a deal was in the works, and it is only a matter of time before an official announcement is made.

An announcement is anticipated later today or tomorrow, once details of the deal have been worked out between Zimmer and the Vikings.
