Adam Zimmer, an offensive analyst with the Cincinnati Bengals, passed away unexpectedly as a result of long-term alcohol consumption.

On October 31, Zimmer was discovered dead at his Mendota Heights residence while doing remote work for the Bengals. He was 38.

Zimmer's death was attributed on Friday to "complications of chronic ethanol use disorder," according to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office.

According to The Liberty Ranch, an addiction treatment facility in Kentucky, ethanol is the component of alcoholic beverages that makes a person feel drunk.

The misuse of alcohol is referred to as ethanol use disorder.

Prior to working with the Bengals this season, Zimmer served as the co-defensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings in 2021.

From 2008 until 2013, Mike Zimmer oversaw the Bengals' defence.

Zimmer began his coaching career as an assistant linebackers coach with the Saints. During the 2009 season, he led the New Orleans Saints to a Super Bowl victory.
