Bengals: 8 potential coaching replacements if Zac Taylor is fired
When thinking about who could take the reins of the Cincinnati Bengals if Zac Taylor is out by the end of the season, first, the front office has to think about what direction they want the Bengals to go in.
With a promising young quarterback who hopes to propel this franchise further than ever before, the Bengals surely want to go with another offensive-minded coach. Except maybe this time, they should hire someone with more experience rather than try to find Sean McVay light.
Cincinnati Bengals Options to Replace Zac Taylor
Eric Bieniemy – Chiefs Offensive Coordinator
Just call Eric Bieniemy the Moby Dick of the NFL coaching world and there are several GMs & Owners thinking of themselves as Captain Ahab, except Bieniemy didn’t go around biting their legs off.
Many have speculated on why Bieniemy wasn’t hired in the 2020 offseason, but it seems that he is just happy in Kansas City and why wouldn’t he be? What Bieniemy has accomplished in KC is remarkable — Developing a generational talent, crazy offensive schemes, great running game.
The Chiefs can beat teams in any way they want on offense, but their opponents get to pick their poison. Burrow isn’t and will never be what Patrick Mahomes is, but given the talent level that is in Cincy on offense along with their young age, Bieniemy could really make this offense look flashy and fun and possibly become a scoring juggernaut.
If the Bengals part ways with Taylor by the end of this year, this is the first call they should make, and go early because every team looking to hire will have Eric Bieniemy at the top of their lists.
