Vikings Hire Mike Zimmer

David Dermer/Diamond Images/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Minnesota Vikings have hired Mike Zimmer as their new head coach, reports ESPN.

Zimmer is set to become the third head coach hired since current owners Zygi and Mark Wilf bought the team in 2005.

Zimmer spent the last five seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals as defensive coordinator and has been in the league for two decades.

The Bengals reached the postseason the last three seasons, but failed to find a way into the divisional round each year.

The Vikings fired head coach Leslie Frazier on Dec. 30 and began their interview process.
