Last season, the Vikings celebrated their first NFC North title since 2009. Now, Minny is rewarding the head coach responsible for the team accomplishing the feat.
The Vikings announced Thursday that they have extended the contract of Mike Zimmer.
Zimmer has racked up an 18-14 record in his first two years coaching in Minnesota, including a playoff appearance last season.
"Mike has instilled a very positive atmosphere over the past three years and our players have thrived under his tutelage and leadership," Vikings owner Zygi Wolf said in a statement. "His focus on helping our players develop and maximize potential, individually and collectively, is critical for our current and future success. We believe the continuity established with Mike leading our football team is a very positive step for our organization."
