CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals hired Jemal Singleton from the Raiders on Monday to serve as their running backs coach, part of their latest moves to fill out Zac Taylor's staff.
They also added Joey Boese as strength and conditioning coach, and hired high school coach Doug Rosfeld as director of coaching operations.
CINCINNATI (AP) — After 16 years without a playoff win under Marvin Lewis, the Bengals decided to try something different. But they had to wait more than a month before hiring Zac Taylor as their next coach in hopes of ending a long streak of futility.
Taylor's already been in town enough to know the history.
ATLANTA (AP) — Quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor isn't allowed to talk about what will happen next week after the Los Angeles Rams' trip to the Super Bowl is over and the Cincinnati Bengals hire their next head coach.
Brian Flores, the New England Patriots' unofficial defensive coordinator, says it would be disrespectful for him to discuss what's going on with his own career until next week, when the Miami Dolphins make their own head coaching hire.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Making the most of a second chance, Don Martindale has done an impressive job assembling and directing the top-ranked defense in the NFL.
Combining an aggressive array of blitzes with bold coverage in the backfield, Martindale has added his name to the long list of accomplished Ravens defensive coordinators that includes Marvin Lewis, Rex Ryan, Chuck Pagano and Dean Pees.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Former Broncos head coach Vance Joseph will interview for Cincinnati's job this week as the Bengals begin their search for Marvin Lewis' replacement.
Joseph will be in Cincinnati on Thursday and Friday to talk to owner Mike Brown and members of the front office. The Bengals' familiarity with Joseph works in his favor. Joseph was the defensive backs coach under Lewis in 2014-15.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — John Elway's search for his fourth coach in six seasons began with former Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, a native of Boulder, Colorado, on Wednesday.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Bengals owner Mike Brown must decide whether to bring in another newcomer to coach his team, or return to his pattern of trusting someone he already knows well.
Whoever gets the job will inherit a roster on the cusp of significant change.
DENVER (AP) — Every year, while a dozen NFL head coaches are preparing their teams for the playoffs, nearly as many coaches are called into their general manager's office and told they're fired for not being one of those dozen coaches who are preparing their teams for the playoffs.
Eight coaches lost their jobs in 2018, including Mike McCarthy in Green Bay and Hue Jackson in Cleveland, long before the holidays rolled around.
Sean Payton despises the term "Black Monday." And he's one of the coaches who always survives it.
Six head coaches were fired as the NFL season concluded, four of them on Monday. Two, Mike McCarthy in Green Bay and Hue Jackson in Cleveland, didn't even make it that far.
CINCINNATI (AP) — The surprise isn't that Marvin Lewis is gone, but that it took so long for the Bengals to make the change.
Lewis arrived in 2003 and elevated one of the NFL's most forlorn franchises to respectability, but couldn't take it to the next level. He was fired Monday after his 16th season of failing to win a playoff game.
Now, owner Mike Brown will decide whether to bring in an outsider who will shake things up, or stay the course with someone who is familiar.
CINCINNATI (AP) — A lackluster showing in Cleveland consigned the Bengals to last place for only the second time in coach Marvin Lewis' 16 seasons and added another twist to Cincinnati's futile and fan-alienating season.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Marvin Lewis spent about 60 seconds summing up his team's latest loss. Hue Jackson was nowhere to be found.
At this point, there's not much left to say — the Cincinnati Bengals are a mess.
CINCINNATI (AP) — A win over equally downtrodden Oakland ended the Bengals' five-game losing streak, but it couldn't prevent them from being eliminated from the postseason for a third straight year.
Their final two weeks will amount to playing it out before addressing the franchise's overriding question.
CINCINNATI (AP) — An entire month had come and gone without even one win, leaving the Bengals in their deepest drought since 2010.
Joe Mixon provided just enough to give the sparse crowd a reason to cheer at the end of their final home game.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Joe Mixon had one of the best games of his career in yet another Bengals loss — making it seven of their past eight, and counting. He sees no reason to slow down even as another season slips away in Cincinnati.
"Right now, we are down but we ain't out, so that's how I'm approaching it," the second-year running back said. "I'm going to approach it like we're in."
CINCINNATI (AP) — Jeff Driskel was better in his second NFL start. Joe Mixon ran for more than 100 yards. A historically bad defense held its own after a rough start.
With all that, the Bengals still couldn't get the one thing they really need.
"Need a win, and everything's better," coach Marvin Lewis said Monday.
They haven't had one of those since October, leaving Cincinnati (5-8) in a freefall that's taken it from the top of the AFC North all the way to the bottom.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The desperation was evident when coach Marvin Lewis fired his defensive coordinator and installed himself in the role the rest of the way.
Another season was slipping away. There was no more time to lose.
"Game day will be different for me," Lewis said three weeks ago. "It will be a different approach, and it'll be fun."
CINCINNATI (AP) — Bengals coach Marvin Lewis exuded confidence when he fired his defensive coordinator and assumed leadership of the NFL's worst defense. All he's gotten is two more losses that have essentially scuttled Cincinnati's fading hopes.
The Bengals are free falling, with no sign of slowing down. And now their starting quarterback is hurt, too.
BEREA, Ohio (AP) — While the Browns relaxed during the bye week, their fired former coach went back to work.
Hue Jackson's got a new gig.
And this strange season in Cleveland will take another odd turn Sunday when the Browns face the Bengals and Jackson, who somehow survived an 0-16 season and was only briefly unemployed before being hired last week as a special assistant to Cincinnati coach Marvin Lewis.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Head coach Marvin Lewis fired the defensive coordinator and installed himself in a dual role. Bengals players talked about their trip to Baltimore as a pivotal moment in the season, almost a last-stand opportunity. They wound up getting run over.
