Four potential candidates to be the Bengals’ new offensive line coach
OL coach replacements for the Bengals: Doug Marrone
The first coach on this list that the Bengals could consider for their offensive line coach opening is a man who would not only bring experience coaching in the trenches but would also bring plenty of experience as an NFL head coach. Doug Marrone has been the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars since he was given the job in an interim position in 2016, before eventually officially being named head coach.
During his time at the helm of the Jaguars, he led his team to the AFC Championship, where they nearly beat the New England Patriots with Blake Bortles at quarterback. Marrone was also the head coach of the Buffalo Bills for a short time from 2013-2014.
While his head coaching experience sets him apart from other candidates, Marrone has had some of his most successful years as a coach when put in charge of offensive lines. Serving as an offensive line coach for the Jaguars, New Orleans Saints, and New York Jets, Marrone has obviously made a name for himself in protecting the quarterback.
Marrone has officially been let go by the Jaguars, and he will likely be looking for his next job leading an offensive line. The Bengals should reach out to Marrone and see if they can bring his offensive line expertise and head coaching experience onto a staff that desperately needs both of those qualities.
