Two days after the Cincinnati Bengals were eliminated from the playoffs, the Minnesota Vikings continued their head coaching searching by asking to interview both Bengals top coordinators.

The Vikings asked both Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, and defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer for an interview for their vacant head coach position.

Gruden was asked for an interview by four teams; Minnesota, Detroit, Tennessee, and Washington. Zimmer was asked by the Vikings and Redskins.

As for the Vikings previous head coach, Leslie Frazier is joining former Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith in Tampa Bay as the defensive coordinator.
