In two of the last three seasons, Zimmer’s defenses have ranked in the top 10 in both yards and points allowed.
Zimmer is beloved by his Bengals players who helped him recover after his wife died during the season.
However, Zimmer has run a 4-3 defense in Cincinatti, which consists of four defensive lineman and three linebackers.

In addition, LaCanfora reported that Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey is expected to interview for the Fins’ job later this week.
Mularkey’s Falcons offense is coming off a complete demolition at the hands of the New York Giants.
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is hoping that Fisher will turn down the St. Louis Rams and sign with the Dolphins.
But, many experts say Fisher is likely to go to St. Louis where the team has a franchise quarterback, the number two overall pick in the draft, and tons of cap space to rebuild the roster.MORE NEWS: South Florida PBA Union President Steadman Stahl On Stress Of Being A Police Officer
