Zimmer will agree to a multi-year extension

It was just two weeks ago that many questioned the future of Mike Zimmer as the head coach of the Vikings. But those questions went away with an upset victory in New Orleans.

With wunderkind Kevin Stefanski off to Cleveland, this team is officially Zimmer’s (as if it wasn’t to begin with) and ownership even gave him a vote of confidence before upsetting the Saints.

It’s one thing for ownership to say such a thing, but it’s another to take action. As Zimmer enters the final year of his contract, the Vikings will look to give him a new deal that ensures he won’t be a lame-duck coach in 2020.

"“I love these players, this organization. The owners have been outstanding to me. I believe that there will be conversations here in the near future and whatever happens, I’m happy with it.”"

Unlike last offseason, where Zimmer got a one-year extension in a similar scenario, it’s possible that Minnesota makes a multi-year commitment to the head coach, who has gone 57-38-1 with a 2-3 playoff record in six seasons with the Vikings.

While there are kinks to work out, the one constant should be Zimmer’s presence and if he can push the right buttons this offseason, there’s a chance Minnesota could be in for a turnaround in 2020
