Cincinnati Bengals to fire OC after rough start to season

Share

The Bengals on Friday fired offensive coordinator?Ken Zampese following the team's lackluster 0-2 start, marking the first time in the 50-year history of the organization that a coordinator has been fired during the season.

The Bengals managed just nine points against the Houston Texans on Thursday after a season-opening shutout against Baltimore, and questions are being asked of offensive coordinator Ken Zampese.

The Cincinnati Bengals have not scored a touchdown through two games.

Zampese took over the job last season after Hue Jackson left to fill the head coaching position in Cleveland.

"No, I'm not anxious about Andy", said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. "We have a lot of talent on offense, and we need to keep working to take full advantage of the personnel we have", said Lewis. Woes in pass protection have not helped things, as Dalton has been sacked eight times in two games and clearly appeared off-kilter throughout Thursday night's game. Because the Bengals have yet to find the end zone this season, Green believes that he definitely needs the football in his hands more often in order for the AFC North franchise to turn things around in a hurry.

"We're not getting the results we need to get", Lewis said. Since then, Lazor has had stints in Atlanta, Washington and Seattle before making a brief detour into the college ranks once again when he was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the University of Virginia from 2010 until 2012.

"We're not scoring", Green said.

The NFL season is just over two weeks old, but the Cincinnati Bengals are already entering crisis mode. "We are going to have to look at it and see what we can do differently". "They're playing their butt off, while we're playing like s-- right now".
