2014 Coaching Staff Headshots

Mike Zimmer

Head Coach


Mike Zimmer enters his 5th season as Vikings Head Coach in 2018 following a record-setting 2017 campaign that saw the Vikings go 13-3, win the NFC North title, and advance to the NFC Championship game with the #1 ranked defense in the NFL- in both yards allowed and points allowed. The #1 ranking in total defense was the 1st time the Vikings have achieved the feat since the 1993 season and a testament to Zimmer’s scheme and teaching since he inherited the #31 defense in the NFL when he took over as head coach in 2014. Zimmer was hired as the 9th head coach in Vikings history on Jan. 15, 2014. A veteran defensive coordinator, Zimmer is in his 25th season on an NFL sideline in 2018.
