Cincinnati Bengals have one of smallest coaching staffs in NFL

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

It's no secret that the Cincinnati Bengals tend to stick to being 'conservative' with the amount of money they spend on all aspects of football. Whether it's their scouting department, one of the smallest in the NFL, or their reluctance to spend money on free agents, Mike Brown chooses to spend money carefully and concisely (unless it's Antonio Bryant).

So it comes as no real surprise the Bengals employ one of the smallest coaching staffs in the NFL. Brandon Lee Gowton of Bleeding Green Nation did an in-depth study on the size of every NFL coaching staff in 2013 and what they look like going into 2014 in terms of their size:

Team 2013 Record Team 2014 Change
Eagles 24 10-6* Eagles 25 +1
Seahawks 24 13-3* Seahawks 25 +1
Buccaneers 23 4-12 Ravens 25 +4
Cardinals 22 10-6 Cardinals 24 +2
Chiefs 22 11-5* Jaguars 24 +2
Jaguars 22 4-12 Rams 23 +1
Rams 22 7-9 Bills 23 +3
Vikings 22 5-10-1 Chiefs 22
Broncos 21 13-3* Broncos 22 +1
Cowboys 21 8-8 Packers 22 +1
Dolphins 21 8-8 49ers 22 +1
Packers 21 8-7-1* Browns 22 +2
Raiders 21 4-12 Lions 22 +3
Ravens 21 8-8 Colts 21 +1
Saints 21 11-5* Chargers 21 +1
49ers 20 12-4* Raiders 21
Bears 20 8-8 Dolphins 21
Bills 20 6-10 Saints 20 -1
Browns 20 4-12 Buccaneers 20 -3
Chargers 20 9-7* Vikings 20 -2
Colts 20 11-5* Cowboys 20 -1
Giants 20 7-9 Bears 20
Jets 20 8-8 Giants 20
Texans 20 2-14 Jets 20
Lions 19 7-9 Redskins 20 +2
Bengals 18 11-5* Panthers 19 +2
Redskins 18 3-13 Texans 19 -1
Patriots 18 12-4* Falcons 18 +1
Falcons 17 4-12 Bengals 18
Panthers 17 12-4* Patriots 17 -1
Steelers 15 8-8 Steelers 16 +1
TOTAL: 630 TOTAL: 652

The Bengals were tied for the fourth-smallest staff in 2013. It's worth noting though that of the teams that employed 18 or fewer coaches, three teams won 11+ games, two won four or fewer games and one team went 8-8.

Looking at teams who employed 22 or more coaches, four won seven or fewer games, while the other four won 10+ games.

In other words, there's no real correlation between win/loss records and the number of coaches employed.
