Both Mike Zimmer and Jay Gruden confirmed today that they plan to interview with teams this week:

That last statement by Zimmer sounds like he’s comfortable and maybe even ready to leave the team if some is willing to hire him to be a head coach.

The man has done a lot of great things for the Bengals as he’s been a key reason why they’ve enjoyed a franchise-record three-straight postseason appearances.

I will say that I’d like to see him enjoy a playoff win in Cincinnati before he leaves, but regardless ,the man deserves to be a head coach, and this is the year he may finally get that opportunity.
