Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer was considered one of the most sought-after assistant coaches in the NFL this off-season, with the Redskins and Dolphins among the teams that were reportedly interested in his services. But he’s not going anywhere.
Steve Wyche of NFL.com reports that Zimmer has re-signed with Cincinnati.
There’s no word on the details of Zimmer’s contract, but considering that he had Dan Snyder’s deep pockets to use as leverage, it’s probably safe to say that the Bengals gave Zimmer a hefty raise.
The Bengals hired Zimmer as their defensive coordinator in 2008. He has previously worked for the Cowboys and Falcons.
UPDATE: Wyche reports that Zimmer signed a three-year contract.
