Mike Zimmer was hired as the ninth head coach in Vikings history on January 15, 2014, replacing Leslie Frazier.
A veteran defensive coordinator, Zimmer enters his 21st season on an NFL sideline, the past 14 working as defensive coordinator for Cincinnati (2008-13), Atlanta (2007) and Dallas (2000-06).
Zimmer has been a part of 11 playoff teams in his NFL tenure and teams that have won seven division titles. He coached the Cowboys DBs when the team won Super Bowl XXX over the Pittsburgh Steelers after the 1995 season. Zimmer's Bengals defenses since 2008 have ranked in the NFL's top 10 in total defense four times, climbing to No. 3 in 2013. Since 2011, the Bengals ranked No. 2 in the NFL with 139 sacks (46.3 per season) and have allowed 18.8 points per game, ranking No. 4 in the NFL in points allowed. The 2013 Bengals posted 20 INTs, the fifth-best mark in the NFL.
