Mike Zimmer will be the new coach of the Minnesota Vikings, according to NFL.com. The appointment was just announced. He’s been a defensive coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals the last four out of five years, each year producing a top ten defense. This year, the Bengals defense was ranked third in league. This provides solid and stern leadership to the Vikings organization that many agree they have lacked. Fans will be hoping that Zimmer can turn the Vikings defense, which was ranked 31st this season, into a top-ranked program going into next season. Further details on the hiring will undoubtedly be revealed as the day goes on.
