Today I reported that Jay Gruden would be interviewed by the Minnesota Vikings for their head coaching vacancy. Well it seems that both Gruden and Zimmer will both get an interview.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that the Vikings have interest in Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer and offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, according to sources familiar with the Vikings’ thinking.
The Vikings are in a holding pattern until Cincinnati’s season is over. That could happen as soon as Sunday when the Bengals host the San Diego Chargers in a wild-card matchup.
Gruden is an offensive mastermind, as most of you know, I worked with him in Orlando as an assistant. Gruden is a very solid coach and would be an amazing mind with both Adrian Peterson and Cordarelle Patterson. He could make something special if he found his quarterback.
