On Tuesday, the Cincinnati Bengals announced that Vance Joseph will join incumbent coach Mark Carrier to coach the team’s defensive backs. Marvin Lewis commented on his latest position coach:

“Vance has excellent experience and has coached a lot of good young players. We feel fortunate to have been able to sign him up for this important job.”

Joseph is an experienced coach and a former player. After playing for two seasons in the NFL (1995 and 1996), he moved into coaching. The veteran coach has spent time with the 49ers and Texans. Joseph commented on his new role:

“I consider myself a very positive coach in the way I work with players, and I put a lot of stress on great technique. I believe I can get those technique points across very well.”

Although the Bengals have one of the highest ranked defenses in the NFL, the team was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs for the third consecutive year. The team hasn’t won a playoff game in more than twenty years.
