Mike Zimmer won’t be coaching the Vikings in the final season of his contract after all. After wondering all offseason whether Zimmer would be getting a contract extension, that question was answered Wednesday when Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported the team was working on finalizing a multi-year extension with the veteran coach.

The 64-year-old Zimmer is the third-winningest coach in Vikings history.
