Vikings "very likely" to hire Mike Zimmer on Tuesday

Nothing is done nor set in stone, but the Vikings may hire Mike Zimmer later in the day on Tuesday.

Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer will "very likely" be hired by the Minnesota Vikings "later today", tweets CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

This doesn't mean it's a done deal by any means.

However, the conclusion makes sense.

Zimmer is currently in Minnesota conducting his second interview and he's the only known candidate having a second chat with the Vikings. Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles was a reported finalist, but no second interview has been scheduled.
