Adam Zimmer

Co-Defensive Coordinator/Linebackers


Adam Zimmer begins his seventh season with the Vikings in 2020 and his first as a defensive coordinator while still overseeing the linebackers. Zimmer was vital in developing Pro Bowl linebackers Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks. In Zimmer's six seasons with the Vikings, the defensive unit ranks in the top of the league in third down conversions (first, 36.1%), offensive points allowed (second, 181), opponent yards per game (third, 321.8), and sacks (third, 260). Kendricks was named AP First Team All-Pro after his 2019 season where he led the team in tackles for the fifth consecutive season and finished with 12 passes defensed, tied for the most among NFL linebackers.
