Adam Zimmer, the former co-defensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings and the son of former Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has passed away due to excessive alcohol consumption.
Adam Zimmer was an NFL (National Football League) coach from the United States. He was an assistant defensive back coach and offensive analyst for the Cincinnati Bengals, an assistant linebackers coach for the Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints, and a linebackers coach and co-defensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings.
Take a look at:
From 2002 to 2005, Zimmer was a safety for the Trinity University Tigers football team, where he wore #28. The 38-year-old man was found dead at his home in the Twin Cities on October 31, 2022. The Hennepin County Medical Examination Bureau confirmed the cause of death in public records released Friday.
The medical examiner said Zimmer’s death was caused by “Complications of Chronic Ethanol Use Disorder.” The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that about 140,000 people die each year in the United States from drinking too much. This is the most preventable cause of death in the country.
According to an email sent this morning by the Hennepin County medical examiner, the cause of death of ex-#Vikings assistant Adam Zimmer on 10/31 was due to “complications of chronic ethanol use disorder.” In other words, alcohol related. Cause of death was called “natural”.

Bring Me The Sports was told by the Mendota Heights Police Department that Zimmer was found dead at 1:13 p.m. Monday, October 31, at his home on the 2500 block of Condon Court in Mendota Heights. This was after the police were called to check on Zimmer’s well-being at 1:13.
That’s what the department says “There are no signs of wrongdoing” and that there are no strange things about his death. The coroner’s report says his death was “natural.”
