Vikes Hire Zimmer As HC

Zimmer has been a Head Coaching candidate for several years.

The Minnesota Vikings have hired Cincinnati Bengals DC Mike Zimmer as their Head Coach.

Zimmer’s defensive units have been fantastic recently. In 2012 and 2013, Cincy’s defense has ranked sixth- and third-best in the league when it comes to yards allowed per game.

Zimmer is an aggressive coach with a strong defensive mind. He will likely be controlling the defense more than the offense, but the team is lacking a consistent starting quarterback. And until they can acquire a signal caller who can win primetime games, the Vikes stay locked in the cellar of the NFC North.
