Bengals Give Miami Dolphins Permission To Speak With DB Coach Kevin Coyle

According to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports, the Cincinnati Bengals have given the Miami Dolphins permission to speak with Bengals defensive secondary coach Kevin Coyle and that interview will take place at some point this week. Jason La Canfora originally wrote that the Dolphins were interested in Coyle, but it wasn't reported that permission was given by the Bengals to allow Coyle to interview.

According to Marvez, the Bengals allowed for two interviews with the Dolphins.

If Coyle leaves to for Miami, the Cincinnati Bengals could be in a particular predicament, especially if Mike Zimmer leaves for a head coaching position in Tampa Bay. Coyle was expected as a favorite to replace Zimmer as the team's defensive coordinator.

Last year the Philadelphia Eagles were denied permission to speak with Coyle for their open defensive coordinator position.

Cincinnati has had an unfamiliar assault with their coaches this year, with interest by multiple teams for both coordinators, as well as a defensive assistant in Coyle.
