The Cincinnati Bengals are reportedly going to try to hire Zac Taylor as their next head coach. Taylor cannot be hired until after Los Angeles' season is over.

The Browns are so buzzworthy right now that former Ravens Head Coach Brian Billick believes they are positioned to be a Super Bowl contender in the next two years, per 92.3 The Fan.

Taylor was the offensive coordinator for the University of Cincinnati in 2016, and sources said he would like to return to the city.

Prior to coaching the quarterbacks this season, the 35-year-old Taylor was the Rams' assistant wide receivers coach in 2017.

Taylor also represents a more overarching trend in the National Football League: hiring young, offensive-minded head coaches. Dolphins associate head coach Darren Rizzi is also interviewing for the job. In Arizona, the team was able to pry away Kliff Kingsbury from USC and made him head coach at age 39.

Teams can't hire coaches from playoff teams until their teams are eliminated.

At the very least, multiple outlets argued, there's one indisputable fact about Taylor that should make fans very happy: He's not Hue Jackson.
