Could the Bengals Lose Mike Zimmer to Miami?

The Cincy Enquirer reports that the Dolphins seem to be leaning towards Mike Zimmer as being the teams new head coach. Zimmer led the Bengals defense this past season, a unit that helped the team make the postseason.

ProFootballTalk.com’s Mike Florio reports that “there’s increasing chatter in league circles” that the Dolphins are leaning toward Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer to fill their head-coaching vacancy. The move would reunite Zimmer and Miami G.M. Jeff Ireland, who spent six seasons together from 2001 through 2006 as employees of the Cowboys. The Bengals feared losing both Zimmer and offensive coordinator Jay Gruden after an unlikely playoff berth in 2011. Gruden has opted to stay. It would actually hurt a little less for Zimmer to go, given that head coach Marvin Lewis was a defensive coordinator before taking over the team in 2003.
