The San Diego Chargers have expressed interest in Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, according to Kevin Acee. An interview has not been set ufor him just yet, but hopefully the announcement of a new GM will speed up that process.
Zimmer has been in the league for 18 years and he has had his defense with the Bengals finish in the top 10 for three of his four seasons. He has worked with the Dallas Cowboys and the Atlanta Falcons before landing with the Bengals.
The Cleveland Browns are also interested in his services for their head coaching vacancy. They have an interview already set up with him.
He has run a 4-3 defense and also has run a 3-4 defense. If Zimmer is hired, the status of John Pagano will be up in the air. The status of John Pagano shouldn’t hinder hiring a head coach. Find a good head coach and let him fill his staff with studs. If he likes Pagano, then let him stick around also.
