The Kansas City Chiefs announced the hiring of Adam Zimmer as the club’s defensive assistant/assistant linebackers coach on Tuesday.
Zimmer joins Head Coach Todd Haley’s staff after serving in a similar capacity the past four seasons with New Orleans (2006-09). During his tenure with the Saints, he was part of a New Orleans coaching staff that helped guide the franchise to a victory in Super Bowl XLIV, as well as a pair of NFC Championship Game appearances. The Ogden, Utah native was a four-year letterman as a defensive back at Trinity (TX) University. He is the son of Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer.
