Bengals: 8 potential coaching replacements if Zac Taylor is fired
By Eric Bruns
Cincinnati Bengals Options to Replace Zac Taylor
Dan Mullen – Florida Gators Head Coach
Most of you readers don’t know this about me yet, but I am a big Florida Gators fan so this may come off a bit bias, but Dan Mullen might be a quarterback whisperer just like Andy Reid has become.
Mullen has coached Alex Smith, Tim Tebow, Dak Prescott, and Kyle Trask, all quarterbacks who had major success in college and two in the NFL (Smith, and Prescott) with Trask yet to be seen in the NFL.
The drawback with Mullen is he does not have any pro experience. As we have seen, not all good college coaches can transfer their success to the NFL. That doesn’t mean they can’t or won’t do well.
Also, does Mullen have any interest in going to the NFL? Florida is prime real estate for recruiting and Mullen may be content to stay in Gainesville for a long time. That doesn’t mean NFL teams won’t come to see in Mullen has any interest. If he does, Cincy wouldn’t be a bad option for him and he could work his magic on Burrow.
