Cincinnati Bengals potential coach: Who is Zac Taylor? - 4News

The Cincinnati Bengals look to continue the NFL trend by potentially hiring Zac Taylor, an up-and-coming offensive mind with no previous head coaching experience, to become their 10th coach in franchise history.

Taylor, 35, works for an offensive juggernaut in Los Angeles, where the Rams struck gold by taking a chance with their hire of Sean McVay two years ago. The move can\'t be made official while Los Angeles is still in the playoffs.

Around the league since McVay entered, and especially this offseason, coaches with similar profiles and resumes – Matt LaFleur in Green Bay, Kliff Kingsbury in Arizona – have accepted jobs to lead teams into the future.

The Bengals made their decision after interviewing other candidates with offensive backgrounds and those familiar to franchise.

Taylor has no previous ties to Mike Brown and his family, but those in Cincinnati may remember Taylor\'s work as offensive coordinator for Tommy Tubervi
