    Former Vikings Assistant Coach Adam Zimmer Dies at Age 38

    Published on

    Adam Zimmer, a former co-defensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings, passed away Friday at the age of 38.

    This season, Zimmer served as a consultant for the Cincinnati Bengals. Prior to that, he spent 16 seasons in the NFL as an assistant coach, working with the Bengals, Kansas City Chiefs, and New Orleans Saints.

    He most recently served on the coaching staff of Mike Zimmer, his father, the former head coach of the Minnesota Vikings, who was let go earlier this year following two unsuccessful seasons with the Vikings.

    Bengals owner Mike Brown issued a statement saying, “Our organization has had the privilege of knowing and working with the Zimmer family for 15 years,”.  ““We have the highest regard for Mike and Adam, and we are incredibly saddened by this tragic news. Mike and Adam were more than just coaches for us — they were friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Zimmer family at this time.”

    The Saints released a statement in which they stated, “We had fond memories of Adam from the four years that he spent in our organization as an assistant coach from 2006-09, including serving as a member of our Super Bowl Championship coaching staff,”. “Adam was knowledgeable, hard working, well-liked by everyone he came into contact with, and enthusiastic. During his time with the Saints, he quickly developed into an excellent coach.”

    The Vikings also released a statement in which they expressed their “heartbroken” over the news.

    There was no immediate mention of the death’s cause or any additional information.

    In 2009, Vikki Zimmer, Adam Zimmer’s mother, passed away unexpectedly at age 50. According to CBS Sports, she passed away “unexpectedly.”

    In an Instagram post, Adam’s sister, Corri Zimmer White, wrote on her brother’s passing and said he had also passed “so unexpectedly.”

    “I can’t believe I’m writing this. I lost my big brother yesterday,” she stated. Yesterday, I lost my older brother,” she wrote. “The kindest, sweetest, family loving, sports obsessed soul there ever was. I’ve felt pain like this once before but it’s been a while and I didn’t know I was able to feel like this again. My heart is shattered and it hurts so bad. I don’t know how to juggle being a mom to one year old twin boys and the grief of losing my brother so unexpectedly. I’m so lost, I’m so overwhelmed, I’m so heartbroken.”

    More on this story via The Western Journal:

    “My brother was one of my best friends, especially after my mom died, we became so close. He was always there for me and always the first to show up and volunteer at my foundation events… I never even had to ask. Always telling me what a good job I did and how proud he was of me. His support and love for me was SO big and I hope he knew how much I loved him. In the last year he told me countless times how he loved watching me be a mom and how proud he was of me.”

    White closed her post with a request for prayer for her family, followed by her own prayer. CONTINUE READING…
