Vikings are hiring Mike Zimmer as their HC, per league source.


Thought I'd break it out for what looks to be the final candidate and hire for the Vikings. It is being reported right now, and I find this to be a good signing and I'm hoping we get Linehan as OC.

PS: I thought it probably made sense to make this a separate thread.

Looks like we got our guy. Does this mean we draft defense heavy?

Yay, Invader Zim puns for everybody!

Fo' rizzle, though, I love this signing, I think he'll be able to do wonders for this defense by himself, let alone if he can bring one of his assistants from Cincy (if they let him). Even if they don't, he's got the success and capability to completely retool this defense and make it successful in a couple of years time.

I would have preferred an offensive minded guy, but he's still light years better than Frazier.

Solid hire, imo.

Going to predict Norv Turner, who Zim worked with in Dallas, as your new OC.

I was just coming to post that about Norv, I'd like him or Linehan, either are very solid OC.

YES!!!

I'm all for Norv. Wasn't on my mind as a likely candidate but makes a ton of sense for a defensive minded coach in his first HC gig to hire an OC with tons of experience. He will probably get autonomy over the offense.

Great hire. Couldn't be happier. Should see immediate improvement and we will be a serious contender in a matter of 2-3 seasons.

Congrats. Guessing I'll be rooting for the Vikings when I'm not rooting for the Bengals next season.

Great guy, just understand it takes time for him to get people to do things 'his way'. Dunlap was a backup DE for 2 seasons because he wanted better effort from him against the run. So it'll happen, just might not happen overnight...

Orlovsky has too much experience here. Manziel doesn't stand a chance.

Awesome news. He was my favorite option.

I saw a tweet that Zimmer has already reached out to Gary Kubiak, Scott Linehan and Ken Zampese to be OC. Norv Turner is also rumored. I would probably prefer Norv Turner, but Kubiak or Linehan would also be great options.
