02:58 PM ET 01.12 | The Minnesota Vikings appear to be closing in on their head coaching search, as they narrow down the list of candidates to replace Leslie Frazier. One of the men who appears to be one step closer to earning the job is Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, who will be getting a second interview early next week. Zimmer has been considered one of the favorites for the Vikings opening from the beginning, so the fact that he will be getting a second interview comes as no surprise.

The other two candidates of note for the job are Jack Del Rio and Todd Bowles.

My money says Zimmer will be hired before Friday.

I agree, 100%. I've always wondered why he hasn't gotten his chance sooner... hopefully this one comes to fruition.

He was on Frazier's staff. His bags were packed the same time Frazier's were.

He does realize that the Vikes will be playing their home games outdoors for the next couple of seasons, doesn't he?

If they hire Zimmer as head coach, Scott Linehan could be back with the Vikes as OC again.
