The Cincinnati Bengals have hired Zac Taylor as head coach.

Taylor comes to the Bengals after spending last season as quarterbacks coach of the Los Angeles Rams.

The Bengals couldn't officially hire Taylor until the Rams' season concluded. 

Taylor is the 10th head coach in Bengals history.

Taylor is expected to hire Brian Callahan as offensive coordinator.

"I am happy and fortunate to join the Cincinnati Bengals as head coach," Taylor said in a statement. "This is a great organization with good people and a rich history, and I am excited to get started. I am looking to add to that history by setting high standards, and holding everyone here accountable to those standards. There is a lot of work to do, and this is Day 1. We're going to attack every day with enthusiasm to get this team ready to go."
