NFL Coaching Tracker: Bengals Targeting Rams QB Coach Zac Taylor

NFL Coaching Tracker: Bengals Targeting Rams QB Coach Zac Taylor

The Bengals can not officially hire Taylor until the Rams' season ends, but Schefter added he is their preferred choice and it is his job to lose. He clearly knows what he's doing with quarterbacks because Jared Goff has played incredibly well under his tutelage. The Cardinals hired Kingsbury, and now it looks like the Bengals are primed to hire a direct understudy of the Rams head coach.

Stay tuned because things will likely move very fast once the Rams have wrapped up their season.

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


Taylor was the offensive coordinator for the University of Cincinnati in 2016, and sources said he would like to return to the city. In 2018, Jared Goff was an MVP candidate for parts of the season, and the Rams are now still alive in the playoffs and are preparing to take on the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday night. In Cleveland, Freddie Kitchens has been promoted to head coach after taking over the offense as an interim offensive coordinator.

At the very least, multiple outlets argued, there's one indisputable fact about Taylor that should make fans very happy: He's not Hue Jackson.
