David Lippincott is the son of Bengals Director of Personnel Operations Jim Lippincott. David has been with the team for the past three seasons as a coaching assistant, largely "worked extensively with Jerome Simpson last year and was largely credited for his development." Really? Through the first eight games spanning two seasons, Simpson caught only one pass for two yards. In 2010, notably in the final three games in 2010, Simpson caught 20 passes for 277 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
If David Lippincott is being "largely credited" for his contributions towards Simpson's development, how do you not give the man some love?
As a result, the team promoted David Lippincott to a full time position as the team's defensive quality control coach. What does that mean?
His major roles will be in video breakdowns and game plan preparation, and he also will assume on-field duties with front-seven players
Also, the Bengals are bringing back Brayden Coombs, the son of Kerry Coombs (former Colerain head coach, current assistant UC coach). Along with being a coaching assistant, Coombs will have expanded duties which includes advanced scouting and being an assistant to Marvin Lewis.
So far on Monday:
The Bengals hired James Urban as the team's wide receivers coach
The Bengals named Paul Guenther as the team's assistant defensive backs coach
The team promoted David Lippincott as the defensive quality control coach
Brayden Coombs returns for advanced scouting and to get Marvin Lewis coffee
