If the Minnesota Vikings decide to part ways with head coach Mike Zimmer this year, where might he end up for the 2022 season?

This upcoming Sunday, we could end up witnessing the final time in which the Minnesota Vikings will take the field with Mike Zimmer as their head coach.

Rumors and speculation have been running rampant recently regarding Zimmer’s future with the Vikings and most of it leads to his departure from the franchise after this weekend.

If Minnesota actually does end up deciding to part ways with their current head coach, it would surprise absolutely no one if he wound up getting a job with another NFL team for the 2022 season.

Most teams would likely consider Zimmer for a vacancy on the defensive side of the ball. But there might even be a few teams interested in making him their new head coach.

So if the Vikings say goodbye to Zimmer in the near future, who are a few of the teams around the league that might decide to add him to their coaching staff?
