Mike Zimmer will interview with the Titans and Vikings this week

Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator will talk with the Minnesota Vikings and Tennessee Titans this week, according to ESPN.

Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer will interview with the Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings this week, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

We should point out that the interview between the Vikings and Zimmer was initially reported by CoachingSearch.com last week.

Various reports surfaced on Monday that the Titans, Vikings, as well as the Washington Redskins, were interested in Zimmer. The defensive coordinator said, earlier on Monday, that he'll interview with two teams (Titans and Vikings, obviously) and probably a third next week (Redskins).

The biggest risk, aside from actually losing Zimmer, is that he could take a handful of Bengals assistants with him, like running backs coach Hue Jackson as offensive coordinator and linebackers coach Paul Guenther as the defensive coordinator. Both of whom could figure as in-house candidates if Zimmer or Jay Gruden leave.
