Bill Lazor has assumed offensive coordinator duties for the Cincinnati Bengals after the team fired Ken Zampese.
So on Friday afternoon, the team parted ways with Zampese and announced quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor will assume responsibilities as the team's new offensive coordinator.
It will continue to be that way for the Bengals, it seems, at least for the foreseeable future, especially after Lewis voiced his support for Dalton following the team's 13-9 home loss to the Houston Texans on Thursday.
Lewis said the team was frustrated after scoring only nine total points in the first two games.
Cincinnati was shut out by the Baltimore Ravens in its season opener, 20-0.
After an 0-2 start in which the offense has yet to score a touchdown, the Cincinnati Bengals are looking to Bill Lazor to help fix that. The offensive line has not held up the way the Bengals hoped it might.
"No, I'm not anxious about Andy", Lewis said when asked if there will be a quarterback change in Cincinnati.
Those comments could be seen as a dig at the quarterback, but head coach Marvin Lewis stood by Dalton after the game. "We'll have a chance to convene [Saturday] morning after everyone has had a chance to take in what's happening and we'll go forward a lot faster after that". With 516 total yards through two games, they rank second in the National Football League - ahead of the Texans, but behind the Kansas City Chiefs, who amassed 537 yards in their lone game against New England.
Former Georgia WR A.J. Green, one of the biggest stars of the Cincinnati offense, has been held to only 10 catches for 141 yards so far, and he's exhausted of not having the ball in his hands.
"We're not getting them off the field enough", Green said. So, we're just going to tackle that (right now).
