Former Chiefs Assistant Coach Adam Zimmer Joins The Bengals
The Bengals now have two Zimmers on the coaching staff with today’s hiring of Adam Zimmer as assistant defensive backs coach.
The son of defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, Adam Zimmer spent the previous seven seasons as a defensive assistant and assistant linebackers coach with the Chiefs (2010-12) and Saints (2006-09). The Saints won Super Bowl XLIV while Zimmer was on Sean Payton’s staff in New Orleans.
“I’m definitely excited,” Zimmer said by phone. “It’s been hard having to make a change, but getting this chance to work for dad, who I think is the best defensive coordinator in the business, is going to be a great opportunity for me.”
In the news release, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis called Zimmer, “A good young coach with two great experiences already in the NFL.
“He’ll assist our defensive backs coach, Mark Carrier, and I’m very confident he will do a fine job.”
Zimmer played defensive back and was a four-year letter winner at Trinity University in San Antonio.
