The Cincinnati Bengals hired former Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Bill Lazor as quarterbacks coach. Lazor was fired by former Dolphins interim coach Dan Campbell. He replaces Ken Zampese, who was promoted from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator. "With Ken’s elevation to coordinator, I’m ecstatic about bringing in Bill,” Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. “He’s bright, and energetic and he also has experience under great head coaches. He’s got everything we’re looking for to continue to uplift our offense.” Jacob Burney was hired as defensive line coach. "Jacob is a great taskmaster with tremendous experience,” Lewis said. “He started under Bill Belichick at Cleveland and has worked under other great head coaches as well since he came into the league.” Kevin Coyle was hired as secondary coach.Coyle was defensive coordinator with the Dolphins. He was previously a secondary coach with the Bengals. "After being away for four years as a coordinator, Kevin comes back as another asset for Paul Guenther,” Lewis said. “We know Kevin as a great coach of secondary technique and as a coach with great ability to add ideas for game planning.” Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
