Hue Jackson fired by Cincinnati Bengals

  • Bengals projected to retain about half of their coaching staff

Ten days after ending their 16-year relationship coach Marvin Lewis, the Cincinnati Bengals may have tapped a successor: Zac Taylor, quarterbacks coach for the No. 5-ranked Los Angeles Rams.

Taylor was the University of Cincinnati offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2016.

Taylor also coached with the Miami Dolphins for four years from 2012-2015, serving as the team's quarterbacks coach and interim offensive coordinator.

A former Nebraska quarterback, Taylor is in his first year as QBs coach with the Rams after spending 2017 as assistant wide receivers coach.

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

Jackson will not replace Lewis, who was ousted on December 31 after 16 seasons, as head coach nor will he remain with the team after he was sacked Friday according to multiple reports. In Arizona, the team was able to pry away Kliff Kingsbury from USC and made him head coach at age 39.

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 would be the third head coach hired during this cycle who has ties to McVay. His daughter Katie Blackburn was reportedly very involved in the hiring process.

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.
