Mike Zimmer Still Looks to Bill Parcells for Lessons

Parcells has been mentoring coaches for many years, including Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer. Zimmer, in only his second year at the helm, has changed the Vikings culture and has the team primed for a playoff spot – thanks, in part, to help from Parcells.

Zimmer was Parcells’ defensive coordinator with the Dallas Cowboys from 2003-06. To this day, the pair has continued to keep in touch. Read more about their relationship and how Parcells has influenced Zimmer and the Vikings>>>
