 CINCINNATI (AP) - The Bengals have promoted linebackers coach Paul Guenther to defensive coordinator, keeping continuity for a unit that finished No. 3 in the NFL last season.
Guenther was promoted a day after the Minnesota Vikings hired Mike Zimmer as their head coach on Wednesday.
It's the second time in two weeks that Cincinnati has replaced a coordinator with an in-house candidate. They elevated running backs coach Hue Jackson to offensive coordinator after Jay Gruden was hired by the Redskins as head coach.
The Bengals are the first team since the 2006 San Diego Chargers to lose both coordinators to head coaching jobs elsewhere, according to STATS LLC.
Guenther has spent nine seasons on Cincinnati's coach staff, the last two with the linebackers.
