The Bengals announced Tuesday that Jim Lippincott, the team’s director of football operations plans to retire from the team and return to Cincinnati’s Moeller High School as defensive coordinator.

“Jim has been a valued member of our front office for some 20 years, working as both a scout and as an administrator,” said Bengals president Mike Brown in a statement. “His work at Moeller is where his heart takes him now, but I thank him for all he has done here over the years and wish him only the very best. Jim will still be very much in the Bengals picture as we head toward this year’s draft.”

“The people that are here and the people that were here mean so much to me because that’s what means the most,” Lippincott said. “To me, Mike is the living example of what a man should be. He’s honest, sincere, loyal, intelligent, gentlemanly. He made that part of the job easy. With all the friendships I’ve made here, I’ve been blessed.”
