The season is over for the Cincinnati Bengals, and now NFL clubs can begin interviewing their assistants coaches.
CoachingSearch.com reported last week that defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer will interview for the Minnesota Vikings head coaching job.
Now, Albert Breer of the NFL Network is reporting three team are interested in Zimmer, including the Washington Redskins:
And word is three teams have contacted the Bengals on defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer. @MarkMaske says the Redskins are one of them.

And here’s the report from Mark Maske of the Washington post:
The Redskins did not seek permission, at least at this point, to interview fellow Bengals assistant Hue Jackson, according to the person with knowledge of the deliberations, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because neither team confirmed the requests publicly.
It is not clear if Gruden and Zimmer have agreed to interview with the Redskins and, if so, when the interviews will occur.
