Vikings Announce Contract Extension for Head Coach Mike Zimmer

Mike Zimmer

The Vikings announced they have signed Head Coach Mike Zimmer to a contract extension. Terms of the contract are not disclosed.

Zimmer led the Vikings to an 11-5 record last season and the club’s first NFC North Championship since 2009. Zimmer holds an 18-14 record in his two seasons as a head coach, the second-most wins by a Viking head coach his first two season trailing only Dennis Green who had 20 wins.

“Mike has instilled a very positive atmosphere over the past three years and our players have thrived under his tutelage and leadership. His focus on helping our players develop and maximize potential, individually and collectively, is critical for our current and future success. We believe the continuity established with Mike leading our football team is a very positive step for our organization.” – Zygi Wilf, Owner/Chairman

“We are very excited about the direction of our football team with Mike Zimmer as our head coach. His leadership and the strong partnership he has with Rick Spielman has helped transform the culture of our football team. They have established a positive identity for this team with tough minded, disciplined, and smart football players and we believe Mike’s continued leadership bodes very well for our future.” – Mark Wilf, Owner/President.

It’s a great move for the Vikings to make sure they lock up Zimmer, who has done a very nice job with Minnesota since coming on, leading them to a division title last season.

Don’t forget if you’re looking to play the Vikings this season to grab a William Hill promo code as the preseason is set to kickoff next week with the entire 32 teams in the NFL in action.

  1. Well written. As a Seahawks fan, yeah I know we had the horseshoe on our side in the wild card game. But don’t hold that against me! With what Zimmer has done there, I said last year, with Teddy and the way your Vikings look on defense, I’d almost bet that the Vikings would host Super Bowl 52. As long as AP stays healthy, your team is real close to how the Seahawks looked in 2012. Again, well written. I blog on the Hawks, but like reading other NFC teams fan blogs. I’ll look forward to the next
