According to CoachingSearch.com, Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer will interview for the Minnesota Vikings head coaching job. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise if you read Joe Reedy’s earlier report of the Vikings being a team to watch out for in the Zimmer sweepstakes:
In terms of Zimmer, keep an eye on Minnesota. Conventional wisdom among those I’ve talked to with the Vikings say they would like a hard-nosed disciplinarian type, which would be Zimmer.
Zimmer had these comments on Monday regarding interviewing with teams while the Bengals were still in the playoffs and if it was a distraction:
“I don’t know because I haven’t been through that yet. I know that I’ll worry about that if we win. Hopefully we will. … I’ve been watching San Diego all day today. You’ll get a text from somebody … I didn’t even know all the things that happened today in the NFL happened. Guys walk into my office and say hey, so and so got fired, whatever. That’s the only way I know. I’m not checking the waiver wire or whatever.”
