Coaching changes on staff

Recommended Posts

TJ had the si.com piece stuck over on the general board for some reason, but it is now progessed to early word that Turner is one of three already told they will be out after the season. Thank god. Also Nick Eason and another defensive assistant. 

More changes likely too.

also, this is INTERESTING (this looks like Katie and Troy for sure - more evidence the old man has stepped back...):

The front office told Taylor that he needed to make changes to his staff or they would revisit the conversation at a higher level, according to sources.

Well, the scuttlebutt is that Tobin was Zac’s biggest booster during the coaching search, so he’s basically telling Zac that ownership — Troy, Katie, Mike, whoever — wants changes. That’s a good thing whatever the details.

Sending Turner packing is welcome. Now, they need a good replacement.

I will tell you this - "make changes or else" is NOT the usual message from Mike B - nor is that kind of conversation had before the end of the season. More evidence that Katie and Troy have the controls with old man much diminished.

ALSO, dehner on his mid-week pod was adamant that Bobby Hart was gone this off-season - which made sense only if he had also heard that Turner was gone - but he additionally was adamant that the Bengals were planning on spending heavy in FA on offensive line... which would mean last season's spending spree was not a one-off if goes down like that and with Turner gone, more likely that is to happen.

I am thrilled.

For the record, Ben Baby and Tyler Dragon have confirmed the reporting linked above...

I don’t think Mike Brown has been a premier Decision Maker for nearly a decade.

Turner gone is good. I would like Anarumo replaced; defensive assistants/positional coaches alone would be a tad underwhelming.

If the FA energy is real, it’d seem the front office has the same Burrow Fever the fans have — the opportunity for greatness is ripe. That would be great.

MB wants punishment handed-down for the Burrow injury..  Don't think he's not still running the show, he's like the Emperor in Star Wars.  Same thing.   Operating in the shadows, orchestratiing doom and gloom.

I want proof, not speculation! (that it's purely a Troy/.Katie move)

Mike B would never ever move on this before the end of season Monday meeting. He also wouldn’t give ultimatums when season is still going on.

he also wasn’t a FA spending guy. Ever. None of this points to him.

w o o t

now if only they had the balls and good judgement to rid themselves of Zacky as well

but this is an improvement, and I'll take it as a replacement for the usual inertia

I suspect the side story from Dehner about spending big on OL in FA isnt a continuation of last year's process, but rather, insistence from someone they do actually listen to - perhaps the New Guy himself - that New Guy be protected MUCH better ongoing.  New Guy himself is too professional to make threats of leaving/retiring/whatever, but I'd bet the 72 cents I have jingling in my pocket that there are others in his camp, like his agent, who are somewhat less so disposed

Don’t bet it.  We need that 72 cents.  Not for a free agency signing.  We need that 72 cents for the Rookie Pool, followed by the Rookie Pool’s deranged cousin, Injury Settlement.  No one expects... INJURY SETTLEMENT!

Injury pad going to be mad...

Hopefully the replacement for Turner is Callahan.

IF that happens it will get you a seat at the table with 2 big OL free agents in Trent Williams and Brandon Schreff. 
 

MB isn’t the primary roster guy and hasn’t been for a while.  I’m sure he has some sort of say and sign off.

I will wire the funds in immediately.....glad to be of help :-)

It does bother me that the two defensive coaches clearly were and are scapegoats to save the job of others.  Eason was working with mostly street FAS all year long, with every good player he had out injured for at least part of the year. 

What puzzles and confuzzles me is the timing of this change.  They still need to finish out the season and those three individuals likely have gameday roles that others have to now fulfill

I don't know of any good/sensible reason to have made this change or announced word of it prior to the clock expiring at St Pauls Cathedral today

Oh good lord TJ, you will complain about anything. Most franchises announce parting ways with coaches ahead of end of year. We never did. Until now. And you then complain about that.

I assume these guys are all coaching today, correct?  There is no reason to go into this game without 3 guys when we can just part ways with them later today.

They are all coaching today. They are pros doing their jobs just like the players who are on their last game and will be cut. Good lord people are being weird about this.

Possibly interesting note on Bicknell: glancing at his wiki page, I see he’s had 18 jobs since 1993. Of those, 15 have lasted just one or two years. The other three were all three years. So he never stays anyplace long. Just unlucky? Born a ramblin’ man? Quickly becomes irritating? I dunno. But this is pretty par for the course for him.

That’s surprising.  I’d love to hear the story behind this dude’s transient nature.  He keeps getting hired, so I assume he’s not some purveyor of toxicity, like a guy who poisons your culture.
