The situation was untenable even by Mike Brown standards.  Something had to give and easy fix is to can Zampese.  What a total miss at the OC job.  I remember years ago when he was QB coach that there was worry when he would interview for OC positions elsewhere.  Ironic.

HOLY SHIT it's a miracle!

 

So excited for Hobson!!

 

Bengals are LAZOR Focused.

 

Maybe they will bring back Brat and we can all enjoy the halfback pitch!!

Didn't Lazor get fired in Miami for..sucking?

I know a lot of teams hire from within, but do we do it at a higher rate compared to the rest of the NFL for our upper tier coaching positions?

 

I feel like this is the laziest hire possible from the Bengals (if he's the permanent replacement) ever since....Zampese.

Good move.  I hope Lazor gets the job done.  It may seem lazy, but bringing in an outside OC at this point in the season could be a big mess.  At least this guy knows the basics of the offense that has been implemented.  He can modify instead of trying a full overhaul in the middle of the year.  I hope he is "interim" OC.  He needs to earn the full time gig.

I remember when some fans wanted him to take Marvin's job... Ironically, it's mostly the same folks who think the grass will be greener with McCarron.

He hasn't been around that long.  A little over a year total with the Bengals and he knows the system which is important since we are playing game 3 of the season in 9 days.  My guess is the players had input about both firing Zampese and hiring Lazor.

Were not gonna find someone from the outside to take over in-season - replacement had to come in-house, was him or James Urban I would guess...

I don't see the issue with bringing in an outside guy mid-season. NFL teams all generally run all of the same plays, they just use different lingo and signals which change from game to game anyway. I'd assume all of these guys playing football and coaching football for millions of dollars would be able to handle an OC change with 14 games to play without a full offseason.

 

I'm just glad to see the team make a big change in the middle of the season, but I hope Lazor doesn't automatically get the job permanently right away and would hope this is temporary "earn it" kind of thing like someone mentioned above. I'm not trying to complain about this as much as I'm wondering if they're going to be looking outside the org or if Lazor is permanent right off the bat. I think it's fine if he's the interim OC but I think it's super lazy otherwise.

You kind of have to hire within during mid season....you expect the the offense to learn a completely new playbook in 9 days?

What do we know about Lazor?  He obviously was removed as the Dolphins OC but they didn't have the talent or potential this Bengals team has. Anyone have insight to think this guy can unlock some doors?

I remember Lazor from UVA... I think it's a good hire and I think he'll be a HC before long.

And Marvin is kinda known for stashing away future coords on his staff, so I'm not bothered.
