MANKATO, Minn. (KMSP) - Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has left training camp in Mankato to be with his father Bill who is not doing so well down in Florida.
Bill Zimmer is 84 years old and has been battling some health issues the past couple of years.
I was fortunate to spend time with Coach Zimmer’s parents a year ago. Bill Zimmer is a hall of fame football coach and you can see where Mike Zimmer gets his toughness, but also his kindness. We wish the Zimmer family the best.
