Mike Zimmer has been a coach in waiting for a long time now.
The Vikings have finally given him a shot.
Zimmer who coaches with toughness and grit, expects the same out of his new team. During his introductory news conference Zimmer used tough and physical several times.
Zimmer according to Pro Football Talk told the media that he’s determined to bring a championship to the twin cities.
“I’m determined to bring a championship to Minnesota,” Zimmer said. “I’ve got a chip on my shoulder. I want to make sure that 31 other teams know that I’m here and I’m ready to coach this football team.”
“I can’t wait to stand on the podium with Zygi and Mark and Jonathan, and we’re standing on the podium, and we look up and the confetti is falling down on top of us, and we’re all hand in hand, and Commissioner Goodell comes over and hands the Super Bowl trophy to Mr. Wilf and tells him he’s world champion,” Zimmer said. “That is my goal and that is my drive.”
First order of business for Zimmer.
