Mike Zimmer on firing John DeFilippo: 'I don't want the season to be wasted'


December 12, 2018

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer took part of the blame for his team's offensive failures in recent weeks, which led to Zimmer making the tough decision to fire offensive coordinator John DeFilippo.

"John is a good football coach. He's a good man, a hard worker. It was a very difficult decision," Zimmer said Tuesday during a conference call. "I felt like we always had very good dialogue, but I felt like there was a sense of urgency here in these last three weeks."
