It remains unknown who (or when) the Cincinnati Bengals will hire to become their newest defensive backs coach after the departure of Kevin Coyle, who became the Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator late last week. One suggestion we brought up during the insane coaching updates was former Dolphins Intern Head Coach Todd Bowles. Unfortunately he's no longer an option.

According to NFL Network Insider Jason La Canfora, after turning down a job offer with the Oakland Raiders, Bowles has agreed to become the new defensive backs coach for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Also the Bengals are expected to hire a new linebackers coach after the team reportedly decided not to re-sign Jeff Fitzgerald. However contrary to report, Fitzgerald is still listed as the team's linebackers coach on the Mothership.
