Bengals want to hire Rams QB coach Zac Taylor after playoffs

We already saw Matt LaFleur get picked off to become the Packers' next head coach and now another bright young mind may be headed to Cincinnati.

The Bengals have reportedly zeroed in on Los Angeles Rams quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor to replace Lewis as head coach.

People sure do like the idea of inheriting someone behind the Rams' lethal offense.

Teams can't hire coaches from playoff teams until their teams are eliminated.

Prior to working with McVay, Taylor worked with the Dolphins from 2012-2015 as both an assistant quarterbacks coach and interim offensive coordinator.

Former Sheriff Scott Israel vows to fight 'unjustified' suspension from office
Israel , a Democrat, has served as the elected sheriff of the agency with 5,800 employees since 2013. He was joined on Friday by some parents of slain students at the high school who supported his move.

Goff made a huge jump in 2018 under the 35-year-old coach's watch, just as Ryan Tannehill had his best seasons in Miami under Taylor's guidance.

We'll have to wait until the Rams are out of the postseason, but it looks like Taylor's days in LA are numbered, with a bright future lying in front of him. Taylor was Ryan Tannehill's QB coach for three-plus years before spending the '16 season with the Bearcats.

McVay is one of the top head coaches in the National Football League for a reason when seeing how quickly he's made the Rams legitimate contenders again in such a short period of time, so finding a potential replacement for Taylor if needed shouldn't be a problem.

Taylor starred at the University of Nebraska, and was named Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year in 2006.

Other candidates for the Cincinnati job include Hue Jackson - who joined the Bengals midseason after being fired as the Cleveland Browns' head coach - former Broncos head coach Vance Joseph, Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and former Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken.
