A native of New Castle, Pennsylvania, Nimmo played college football at West Virginia and competed in 44 games. He was a two-year starter at left tackle and earned first-team all-conference as a senior as part of an offensive line that yielded only one sack all season. Nimmo was also Academic All-Big East for all four years.[1] He was represented by agent Joe Lenta.[2] In addition to football, Nimmo competed in pedal tractor pulls growing up, which his father, Bob Nimmo, credited as helping his conditioning.[3]

He was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the fourth round of the 2003 NFL Draft.[4] Nimmo went to Japan as part of a preseason game for the Buccaneers but was waived after training camp. He spent the 2003 season on the active roster of the New York Jets, though he never played in a game.[1] He spent the spring of 2004 in NFL Europe, starting 10 games for the Cologne Centurions.[5] Nimmo was signed to the New England Patriots for the 2004–2005 season.[6] Despite remaining on the practice squad, he earned a Super Bowl ring after the Patriots won Super Bowl XXXIX.[1] Nimmo has no official NFL statistics, having only one season as an active, competitive player (with no game time), and having only worked on practice squads in other years.[4]

As of January 2020, Nimmo is a math teacher at Sharpsville Area Middle School, in Sharpsville, Pennsylvania.[7] He is a member of the Laurel School Board.[8]
