Adam Zimmer, ex-Saints assistant on Super Bowl staff, dead at age 38
Adam Zimmer, the son of former Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer and an assistant coach on the New Orleans Saints Super Bowl winning team from 2009, died Monday at age 38.
Corri Zimmer White, Zimmer’s sister, confirmed the news Tuesday via Instagram.
Zimmer had been working as an offensive analyst to the Bengals. He worked as an NFL assistant coach for 17 seasons.
The Saints released the following statement in response to Zimmer’s passing:
“The thoughts and prayers of the New Orleans Saints organization go out to the entire Zimmer family, including Adam’s father, Mike and his two sisters, Corri and Marki, following the passing of Adam Zimmer. We had fond memories of Adam from the four years that he spent in our organization as an assistant coach from 2006-09, including serving as a member of our Super Bowl Championship coaching staff. Adam was knowledgeable, hard working, well liked by everyone he came into contact with and enthusiastic. During his time with the Saints, he quickly developed into an excellent coach. His efforts as a member of the coaching staff, first as a defensive assistant and then as assistant linebackers coach in 2009, were important to this football team, as it built up quickly to reach a championship level.”
Zimmer served as a defensive assistant with the Saints from 2006 through 2009. He worked on his father’s staff in Minnesota including co-defensive coordinator duties in 2020 and 2021 until Mike Zimmer was fired.
