Vikings haven't offered Mike Zimmer the job yet

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

According to multiple reports, the Vikings haven't offered the head coaching vacancy to Mike Zimmer, but will extend his stay for another day.

The Minnesota Vikings haven't made an offer to Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer for the team's vacant head coaching position, according to multiple reports.

Usually when an offer is made, negotiations take place. And if there's significant interest, that can break relatively quickly. Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles could receive a second interview, but Zimmer has clearly generated the most interest. Due-diligence is a justified point (checking, re-checking other candidates), but it's interesting how slowed the pace has become.

Zimmer arrived at the team's headquarters on Tuesday and is expected to stay throughout the day on Wednesday.
