PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Cincinnati Bengals have had one of the NFL’s top defenses for the last several years. The man who had been at the head of that defense, Mike Zimmer, recently left to become the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings. That has opened the door for a local product to take over the unit.
Paul Guenther is a native of Richboro, Bucks County, and he played his college football in Collegeville, spending four seasons as a linebacker at Division III Ursinus College. This will be his tenth season on staff with the Bengals. He most recently had been serving as their linebackers coach before getting the promotion to defensive coordinator.
