Vikings fire longtime head coach Mike Zimmer and GM Rick Spielman after missing playoffs

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

As the Packers ready for their first-round bye after having clinched the division yet again in 2021, how the Vikings approach their coaching and GM search will be paramount to any plans of dethroning Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in the future – assuming they remain married beyond this season.

Zimmer leaves the Vikings with a coaching record of 72-56-1, but having gone just 15-18 in the last two seasons.

So often for the Vikings as of late, it was a combination of questionable offense and a defense that couldn’t finish games, and Spielman bears part of the blame for it all when looking at personnel/roster decisions. Spielman’s time with the Vikings preceded that of Zimmer’s, having joined the club in 2012 and being integral in installing Zimmer two years later, and the fate of the two have been long tied together.
