More On The Bratkowski Firing

Bengals.com has a piece on the news, with these official statements from Marvin Lewis and the Sith Lord himself:

Mike Brown’s statement:

“Bob is an intelligent coach and as fine an individual as you will find in the profession, though the time is right for us to make a change, I thank him for his service here and wish him the best.”

Lewis:

“I want to thank Bob for his role in helping us win two division championships, but after reviewing our season in depth, we’ve decided it’s best for the team to make this change at this time.”

Also of note was Hobson claiming that Brad Childress “decided” not to join the staff as OC.  Earlier indications from behind the striped curtain were that Chilly was never offered the job and that Mike Brown refused to hire him.

A lot of speculation has also centered around QB Coach Ken Zampese getting the job, but Hobson indicates it will most likely be an outside hire.  Besides Zampese, the other internal candidate that could have been considered would be WR Coach Mike Sheppard, who has experience as an NFL OC in New Orleans.
