Zimmer is no stranger to curse words.
The Vikings are hiring Mike Zimmer to be the team's next head coach, a number of national NFL correspondents are reporting this morning.

Zimmer, 57, has been the Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator for the past six seasons. His team was featured on the HBO show Hard Knocks before the 2013 season, and during one preseason game, he laid into his players in the most profane of ways.

Here's the NSFW video:



Well, he'll certainly represent a change of tone from the soft-spoken Leslie Frazier, won't he?

Best feeling Ive had about a Viking head coach since they re-hired Bud Grant. Looking forward to the dynasty he is about to build here.

They need a guy to get fired up and make them earn their money not some patsy who can't make adjustments and quite frankly looks overwhelmed during most of the games please note 85 bears make terrible head coaches except for one Jeff fisher

I think the real star here is the person handling the closed captioning. How does one censor so well on the fly?!

Shocking! A pissed off head coach that swears. What is this world coming to? Those poor guys.

Kluwe was right!! The Vikings are bigoted, and racist.. See they fired a black man and hired an angry old white guy!

I love it! Bring back the smash mouth football attitude we need. I though Frazier was a good coach, but a little too tame. Best wishes to him.

Does Kluwe endorse this hire? I'm sure he'll let everyone know, and so will City Pages. #TweetsAreYours
