New Orleans Saints: Assistant Linebacker Coach Adam Zimmer Signs With Chiefs


The Chiefs continue to re-build their struggling franchise this time plucking assistant linebacker coach Adam Zimmer from the Super Bowl winning Saints.

Zimmer, the son of Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, joined the Saints in 2006 prior to their magical play-off run that season. He of course contributed to the Saints Super Bowl XLIV victory over the Colts and was a valued member of the coaching staff.

Before joining the Saints Zimmer player defensive back at Trinity University from 2002-2005 but obviously never played professionally.

Unfortunately Adam was forced into the limelight after the untimely death of his mother Vikki Zimmer before the Saints week 5 win over the New York Giants, head coach Sean Payton awarded him the game ball after the game.

No word yet on if the Saints will promote someone from within to take his position or hire someone from the outside.
