Some very unfortunate news emerged this morning. Adam Zimmer – who used to be Minnesota’s defensive coordinator – has passed away.

Mike Zimmer was the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings from 2014-2021. During that time, Zimmer’s son helped to coach the defense.

Kevin Seifert relayed the Bengals’ statement:

All of us here at PurplePTSD send our sincere condolences to the Zimmer family and to all those grieving this loss.
