Cincinnati Bengals hope to hire Rams' Zac Taylor as head coach

12 January 2019

The Rams young quarterbacks coach is rumored to have won the job in Cincinnati.

The Bengals fired former head coach Marvin Lewis after 16 seasons with the team.

Hue Jackson, former head coach of the Cleveland Browns turned Special Assistant to head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals, has been fired by the team, according to reports.

If hired, Taylor will be the second coach who's worked under Los Angeles head coach Sean McVay to earn a top job in this coaching cycle; Matt LaFleur already landed with the Green Bay Packers.

When looking at the work Taylor has done over the last two seasons, especially this year with the development of Jared Goff, it shouldn't come as a surprise to hear a team like the Cincinnati Bengals expressing interest in possibly making him their next head coach.

Taylor was the offensive coordinator for the University of Cincinnati in 2016, and sources said he would like to return to the city.

Taylor's Rams are still in the playoffs and face off with the Cowboys on Saturday in the NFC Divisional Round.

The 35-year-old would become the second-youngest active head coach in the National Football League, behind only his current boss, Rams head coach Sean McVay, who turns 33 on January 24.

Another note about this hire is that owner and general manager Mike Brown was not involved in choosing the next head coach. It will be interesting to see if this is a norm for the organization moving forward, and is something that Bengals fans will want to keep their eye on. If Taylor is anything close to Mcvay, he is going to make Bengals fans very happy.
