Bengals coach Marvin Lewis announced that Kyle Caskey is the team’s new running backs coach after Hue Jackson was promoted to offensive coordinator, Nick Hurm of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Last season, Caskey helped direct an offensive line that supported team NFL ranks of sixth in scoring, eighth in pass offense and 10th in net offense.
He just completed his fourth season in the organization focusing on quality control and assisting the offensive line, but also worked generally with running backs before.
It makes for an easy transition as a guy most inside the building already are familiar with. It will, however, be the first time he’s personally in charge of a room.
“Dealing with personalities is going to be fun but I know these guys, they know me,” Caskey said. “We’re all on the same page. I am not going to come in that room and all of a sudden change who I am. I’m the same guy who I’ve been and they know me. And dealing with that —because there’s only one ball. There’s a bunch of guys that want that ball. We’ll make sure that’s taken care of and spread out however we are going to spread it out and make sure they get it done.”
