Cowboys Mike Zimmer kept tabs on the NFL by working in media

The biggest question fans are asking about Mike Zimmer’s return to an NFL sideline and as the Dallas Cowboys’ defensive coordinator is, “Has he been away for too long?” The answer should be a resounding “no,” and here’s why. Yes, the last time Zimmer was seen coaching a defense was January 9, 2021 - three years ago. But it’s not like he spent all his time disconnected from the game until his recent opportunity with Dallas.

When asked how he spent his time away from football during his opening press conference, Zimmer mentioned doing analyst work with former NFL head coach Marvin Lewis and The 33rd Team.
