The Cincinnati Bengals have tabbed Bob Bicknell as their new wide receivers coach, the team announced Monday.

Bicknell comes to Cincinnati from Baylor University, where he was wide receivers coach in 2017. He has 25 years of professional and collegiate coaching experience.

Bicknell’s pro experience includes a total of 10 seasons in the NFL as an offensive assistant coach with the Kansas City Chiefs (2007-09), Buffalo Bills (2010-12), Philadelphia Eagles (2013-15) and San Francisco 49ers (2016). He also coached eight seasons in NFL Europe with Frankfurt (1998-99), Berlin (2000-03) and Cologne (2004-05). His previous collegiate experience includes seven seasons as an assistant coach at Boston University (1993-97), Temple University (2006) and Baylor (2017).

Cincinnati has been conducting a search for a new wide receivers coach after James Urban accepted a coaching vacancy with the Baltimore Ravens, reuniting with John Harbaugh and Marty Mornhinweg.

This news came minutes after the Bengals reportedly landed Teryl Austin as their next defensive coordinator.
