#Bengals DC Mike Zimmer is expected to have his 2nd interview with the #Vikings early next week, source confirmed.
That of course doesn’t mean Zimmer is a shoe in the for the job, just that he has likely been narrowed down to one of the final few candidates.
Losing Zimmer would be a tough blow for the Bengals who potentially will have lost both their offensive and defensive coordinators to head coaching jobs.
Zimmer has been the assumed favorite for the job for a few weeks now and little has changed in that regard, especially after the Vikings request for a second interview.
It is expected the Vikings will announce their new head coach sometime next week.
