Cincinnati Bengals Defensive Coordinator Mike Zimmer has been the frontrunner among candidates for the vacancy at head coach left when the Minnesota Vikings fired Leslie Frazier at the end of the regular season. Following a second interview yesterday (Tuesday, January 14), a deal appears to be in the works.

Sources reported that Zimmer remained in Minneapolis following yesterday's interview with Vikings staff and ownership. To many, this signalled the team may be looking to work out a deal with the Bengals coordinator.
