Bengals Assistants Have Salaries Reduced By 30 Percent

The Bengals are yet another team that has taken some cost-cutting measure during the six-day old lockout. According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Bengals assistant coaches have had their salaries reduced by 30%.

“We have no plans to make our employees carry this burden unduly,” Brown said on Saturday. “They will be asked to do something but we are going to keep our people under hire and support them. That’s part of what we prepared to do over these years. We have an obligation to our people and we are not going to ask them to carry an unfair burden.” Players are locked out, but coaches are still working, with some hitting the road to take in pro days on college campuses. Reedy adds that the coaches can recoup the lost wages when the lockout is lifted.
