Bengals Hire Adam Zimmer As Assistant Defensive Backs Coach

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Bengals have announced that they hired Adam Zimmer as their assistant defensive backs coach. Adam is the son of defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer.

On Tuesday, it was announced that the Cincinnati Bengals have hired defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer's son, Adam Zimmer, as the team's assistant defensive backs coach.

"Adam is a good young coach with two great experiences already in the NFL," said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. "He'll assist our defensive backs coach, Mark Carrier, and I'm very confident he will do a fine job."

Zimmer has eight years of coaching experience in the NFL, despite the fact that he's 29 years old. He was the assistant linebackers coach for the Saints from 2006-09. As a member of Sean Peyton's coaching staff, he helped coach the Saints to an NFL championship when they defeated the Colts in Super Bowl XLIV, wrapping up the '09 season.

After that, he was hired by the Kansas City Chiefs, where he held the same position from 2010-12. In 2011, Zimmer helped coach both Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson to the Pro Bowl. Zimmer's career with the Chiefs came to an end following the 2012 season when former head coach Romeo Crennel was fired.

Zimmer was arrested on a DUI charge in late December of 2012, after he was involved in a one-car crash.

He played as a defensive back from 2002-05 for Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas.
