Zac Taylor

first_imgIt was reported on Saturday that Zac Taylor will become the Bengals head coach as soon as the Los Angeles Rams are eliminated.  At the time of this writing, the Rams have not played their playoff game yet.So who is Zac Taylor?   Taylor enters his second season as a Los Angeles Rams assistant coach.  Last year he worked with wide receivers, and this year he is the quarterback coach.  In 2016 he was the offensive coordinator of the Cincinnati Bearcats.  Since he is only 35 years old, he would be very young to be a head coach in the NFL.  It is obvious to me that the Bengals are going for offense after spending the last few seasons struggling to score touchdowns.  Even though he is very young, I like him as the potential new coach of the Bengals.last_img read more
