Bengals Officially Announce Jay Gruden As Team's Offensive Coordinator

On Thursday the Bengals officially announced the hiring of Jay Gruden as the team's new offensive coordinator. Here are quotes of the hiring, provided by the Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy.

Marvin Lewis:

"We are excited to have Jay join us and give us a new direction offensively. He has proven himself a consistent winner in a variety of positions and has earned tremendous respect in the coaching profession. He’s going to provide the energy and attacking style that will best suit our offensive skill players and quarterback."

"This is something I wanted to get right, to take the time to make the best decision and I appreciate the support I got from Mike Brown in the process. The offense is where we need to show improvement, and when we do, we’ll show that this team is ready to win the division again like we did just a year ago. Our defense is strong and still improving, and one thing we did in 2010 was to develop a number of very promising new players. Jay is a key addition to this process."

Jay Gruden:

"I expect great things with the Bengals. I intend on bringing a great attitude and work ethic. We’ll build off the strength this offense has developed and add a system to challenge everyone in the building. I thank Marvin Lewis and Mike Brown for this opportunity, and I look forward to working with a great offensive staff."
