According to sources, the Cincinnati Bengals will hire Zac Taylor as the team’s new head coach. The Bengals cannot officially hire Taylor until the Los Angeles Rams are eliminated in the playoffs.
He would replace Marvin Lewis, who spent the past 16-years as the team’s head coach. Taylor interviewed with the team one day after the regular season concluded during the Rams bye week.
Taylor would take over a team that went 6-10 this past season. In their past three seasons, the franchise went 19-28.
The 35-year-old Norman, Oklahoma would keep the offensive-minded coaches trend going with this hire. The Denver Broncos hired the lone defensive-minded coach when they hired Vic Fangio.
He would take over a team that has a lot of question marks. One of the main one’s is what is going to happen to quarterback Andy Dalton. The team could move on from him.
Taylor spent the 2018 season as the Rams Quarterbacks Coach. He was the Rams Assistant Wide Receivers Coach in 2017.
He was previously the Cincinnati Bearcats Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks Coach. He was the Miami Dolphins Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks Coach.
He also served as the Dolphins Quarterbacks Coach from 2013 through 2015. He was the Dolphins Assistant Quarterbacks Coach in 2012.
Taylor began his coaching career as a Graduate Assistant with the Texas A&M Aggies from 2008 through 2011.
