— It appears the next head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals will come from outside the organization, according to the NFL Network’s Mike Silver.
Silver said several Bengals assistant coaches have been let go today, suggesting the new head coach will come from outside the organization and assemble his own coaching staff.
Numerous current Bengals assistants are being let go today and told that the next coach has other assistants to replace them. This strongly suggests that an outside candidate will get the job.— Michael Silver (@MikeSilver) January 10, 2019
Two sources now telling me that Bengals TE coach, Jonathan Hayes has been let go.— Elise Jesse (@Elise_JesseWLWT) January 10, 2019
Hate reporting on guys losing their jobs, especially guys like him... one of the nicest men in this business.
I was just informed that the #Bengals let go of RB coach, Kyle Caskey. His players love him. I have a feeling he’ll be picked up quickly.— Elise Jesse (@Elise_JesseWLWT) January 10, 2019
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network said some of the current coaching staff will be retained by the new coach.
Some will stick around for the new coach, who will come from the outside https://t.co/m0vW46syKl— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 10, 2019
The Bengals interviewed three in-house candidates — Hue Jackson, Bill Lazor and Darrin Simmons — and five coaches from outside the organization to replace Marvin Lewis.
Broncos head coach Vance Joseph, former Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken, Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and Rams assistants Zac Taylor and Shane Waldron were the coaches from outside the organization interviewed.
If Bieniemy, Taylor or Waldron is the Bengals’ pick, the team would have to wait until their current teams are eliminated from the playoffs to annouce the new coach.
