2019 NFL Coach Selections


HEAD COACH
ADAM ZIMMER of the Minnesota Vikings



Adam Zimmer completed his 5th season as the Vikings LBs coach in 2018.

The 2017 Vikings 13-3 regular-season record was the 2nd best in the history of the franchise (15-1, 1998). Minnesota won the NFC North and hosted a Divisional Round Playoff game against Zimmer’s former team, the New Orleans Saints, where the Vikings won on a walk-off, game-winning touchdown as time expired in the 4th quarter.

The Minnesota Vikings defense led the NFL in yards per game allowed (275.9) for the 1st time since 1993 and also led the league allowing 15.8 points per game in the regular season. The Vikings defense limited opponents to 83.6 rushing yards per game (2nd in the NFL) and 3.6 yards per rush (5th in the NFL). Minnesota held opponents to 192.4 passing yards per game, 2nd in the NFL, making them the only defense in the NFL to rank in the top 3 in both rushing yards per game and passing yards per game. The defense also held opponents to a 25.2% (51/202) 3rd-down conversion rate, the best mark in the NFL.
