The Titans confirmed that they had interviewed Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer for their head-coaching vacancy on Thursday.

Zimmer, 57, has overseen the Bengals’ defense for the last six seasons. He has also interviewed for the Vikings’ head-coaching vacancy. Zimmer has been a defensive coordinator in each of the last 14 NFL seasons, leading defenses in Dallas (2000-2006) and Atlanta (2007) before joining Cincinnati.

Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, who also interviewed for the Titans’ head-coaching job, was announced as the Redskins’ head coach on Wednesday.

The Titans fired head coach Mike Munchak on Saturday.
