mike-zimmer-wife-dead-vikki-zimmerSome sad news from the sports world: Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer arrived home on Thursday night and discovered the lifeless body of his wife Vikki Zimmer, 50.

The cause of death has not been determined but foul play is not suspected.

Bengals president Mike Brown released a statement saying, “We are stunned and saddened to learn of Vikki’s passing.  She was a warm and popular person in the Bengals family, and our immense respect and affection for Mike makes this especially hard.  Our hearts go out to Mike and his family.”

The couple had been married for 27 years. Our thoughts go out to the entire family, especially their three children. This is no doubt an especially difficult time for them – their family is known to be extremely close. Cowboys coach Dave Campo summed it all up in a statement he released:

“This is a sad day because I feel the worst for the kids. They have three beautiful kids and in the coaching business, in many times, the kids are closer to their mother than they are their father because of the work schedule.”
