UNDATED (KNSI) The Minnesota Vikings have reportedly settled on Mike Zimmer as their new head coach. That's according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter. 

Zimmer has been the defensive coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals for the past six seasons, and was at the team's headquarters in Eden Prairie Tuesday for a second interview. 

The 57 year-old Zimmer has also coached in the National Football League with the Dallas Cowboys and Atlanta Falcons. 

He replaces Leslie Frazier, who was fired in December following a 5-10-1 season. Frazier has since landed the defensive coordinator job with the Tamp Bay Buccaneers.
