The Bengals are starting to look outside the organization to replace Brian Callahan. According to Michael Silver of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Bengals interviewed Seahawks offensive line coach Andy Dickerson for their offensive coordinator job.
Dickerson has been coaching in the NFL for more than 20 years, including a nine-year stint as the Rams assistant OL coach. He’s spent the past three seasons in Seattle, serving as the team’s offensive run game coordinator before pivoting to OL coach in 2022. During his first season leading the offensive line, he guided rookies Charles Cross and Abraham Lucas to productive seasons in front of a rejuvenated Geno Smith.
With Pete Carroll out in Seattle, the Seahawks allowed his staffers to look elsewhere for jobs. Dickerson has started to emerge as a popular candidate on the OC carousel; the coach is set to interview with the Browns about their open gig.
The Titans are expected to hire Callahan as their new head coach, forcing Bengals HC Zac Taylor to hire a coordinator for the first time since he joined the organization in 2019. Quarterbacks coach Dan Pitcher was viewed as a clear successor at offensive coordinator, but he’s set to interview for that same role elsewhere.
