The Cincinnati Bengals have announced today that Paul Guenther will replace Mike Zimmer as their new defensive coordinator. Guenther should be an excellent fit for the Bengals since he is already familiar with the team. He has been Zimmer’s right hand man as the team’s LB coach.

The Bengals defense finished first in the AFC and third in the NFL for giving up the fewest yards (305.5) per game. The team also ranked fifth in the NFL for giving up the fewest points (19.1) in a game. Lewis is familiar with Guenther as the two coached together for the Washington Redskins. Lewis made the following comments about his new defensive coordinator:

“He knows what we do and how we do it, and he had a hand in creating it. Paul and I have been mostly together since when we were both on the Redskins staff (in 2002). I’ve seen him grow over the years and really have sort of been grooming him for this kind of opportunity.”

Guenther, a Pennsylvania native, played LB for Ursinus College. Before entering the NFL coaching ranks, he spent seven seasons coaching in the college ranks since joining the Bengals in 2006.
