Today the Minnesota Vikings signed head coach Mike Zimmer to a contract extension. Zimmer has led Minnesota to a record of 18-14 (56.3 percent) to go along with one NFC North title and an 11-5 record in 2016.
“Mike has instilled a very positive atmosphere over the past three years and our players have thrived under his tutelage and leadership,” owner Zygi Wilf said in a statement. “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.”
