Despite winning just six games since taking over as Bengals head coach, the organization is sticking with Zac Taylor as the club’s head coach.
“Our fans wanted a fresh new direction two years ago, and that is what we aimed to do in hiring a bright, energetic head coach in Zac Taylor,” Bengals owner Mike Brown said in a statement issued Monday morning.
“We remain bullish on the foundation Zac is building, and we look forward to next year giving our fans the winning results we all want. In Zac’s two years, we have added many new starters and contributors through the draft, we have invested heavily in free agency, and we have acquired a talented young quarterback with a bright future.
“This season we faced challenges with injuries at key positions and missed opportunities. I am proud of our football team for fighting hard through adversity. That adversity and hard work will help us next season.
“We’ll enter the offseason looking to shore up our weaknesses and amplify the strengths of our talented young core. We are not discouraged, but instead feel motivated and confident that next year will reap the benefits of the work that has been done to date. We must capitalize on the opportunities in front of us. Next year we will earn our stripes.”
Taylor and the Bengals had another tough season, but did have some bright spots including the play of first overall pick Joe Burrow, who was having an excellent rookie season till he went down with a left knee injury on November 22nd, ending his season.
In two years at the helm for the Bengals, Taylor is 6-25-1 as head coach.
