Bill Parcells Makes His Opinion Of Mike Zimmer Extremely Clear

Dallas Cowboys hire Mike Zimmer as defensive coordinator.

Mike Zimmer, who was Dallas' defensive coordinator from 2000 to 2006, has been named as defensive coordinator.

Former Cowboys coach Bill Parcells praised Zimmer's attitude and ability to deal with a coach's kid.

Despite their opposing defensive philosophies, Zimmer and Parcells collaborated,

enabling Zimmer to keep the 4-3 until the squad could support a 3-4.

Parcells anticipates Zimmer to start up where he left off,

seeking to get under the skin of players who are unfamiliar with his style.
