The Minnesota Vikings announced today that they'd signed Head Coach Mike Zimmer to a contract extension.

No contract details were given by the team, but Vikings team President/Owner Mark Wilf said that coach Zimmer has "established a positive identity for this team with tough-minded, disciplined, and smart football players and we believe Mike's continued leadership bodes very well for our future."

Zimmer has coached the Vikings to an 11-5 record and the first NFC North Championship since 2009. Zimmer has an 18-14 record in his two seasons as a head coach, the second-most wins by a Viking head coach his first two seasons trailing only Dennis Green, who had 20 wins.
