Friday January 15th, 2016

The Cincinnati Bengals have promoted Ken Zampese to offensive coordinator, the team announced Friday.

Zampese, who will replace new Browns head coach Hue Jackson in the position, spent the previous 13 seasons as the Bengals’ quarterbacks coach. Jackson was hired by the Browns on Wednesday to replace Mike Pettine at the team’s helm.

Before joining the Bengals organization in 2003, Zampese spent a combined five seasons on the coaching staffs of the St. Louis Rams, Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles.

The Bengals also added former New Orleans Saints head coach Jim Haslett as the team’s new linebackers coach. He replaces Matt Burke, who left Cincinnati for a position with the Miami Dolphins.
