Bengals targeting Rams' Taylor as next head coach

Bengals projected to retain about half of their coaching staff

Bengals projected to retain about half of their coaching staff

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

He interviewed for the Denver Broncos' and Arizona Cardinals' head-coaching vacancies before those teams hired Vic Fangio and Kliff Kingsbury, respectively.

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

The Bengals want to get a piece of the Sean McVay coaching tree and are intent on hiring Rams quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor as the new head coach.

Taylor also represents a more overarching trend in the National Football League: hiring young, offensive-minded head coaches.

Turkey views the Kurdish YPG militia, which forms the core of the SDF force, as a national security threat. The coalition "has begun the process of our deliberate withdrawal from Syria.

Prior to coaching the quarterbacks this season, the 35-year-old Taylor was the Rams' assistant wide receivers coach in 2017.

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

Taylor was the University of Cincinnati offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2016. Taylor cannot be hired until after Los Angeles' season is over. In Cleveland, Freddie Kitchens has been promoted to head coach after taking over the offense as an interim offensive coordinator. His daughter Katie Blackburn was reportedly very involved in the hiring process.

Bengals fans have no choice but to be overly optimistic about getting a fresh voice in the locker-room. The Bengals finished No. 17 in offense in 2018 but if Taylor is able to take what he learned from McVay and take it to the Queen City, the Bengals have the potential to greatly improve on that.
