Wednesday has turned into a veritable Mike Zimmer love fest. Viking players have shown nothing but enthusiasm for the new head coach, and now Zimmer’s former players are offering their own endorsements.
Bengals corner Pacman Jones praised Zimmer via Twitter, saying “I told you’ll Zimm would be the Head Coach, that was a good move for the Vikings congrats to coach !!!”
Deion Sanders, who played under Zimmer in Dallas, also gave props. “Congrats to my dear friend and 1 of the best coaches I’ve EVER had Mike Zimmer!!! Well deserved and God bless. Truth.”
Most importantly, former Bengals WR Chad Johnson gave his endorsement. “Defensive minded no nonsense curse you the f**k out type of coach. Love him.”
Well if Ochocinco is on-board, I don’t see how anyone can doubt Zimmer.
The new Vikings coach has also received glowing reviews from Bill Parcells, Brian Billick and Barry Switzer. I’m still waiting to hear what Rich Cotite thinks.
