Marvin Lewis Reportedly Faced 'Near Mutiny' Before Firing Bengals OC Ken Zampese

CINCINNATI OH – SEPTEMBER 14 Benardrick McKinney

Zampese will be replaced by quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor who joined Cincy last season when Zampese was promoted to offensive coordinator. On Thursday night, the Bengals had 306 yards of offense en route to being beaten 13-9 by the Texans.

Lazor spent two seasons as offensive coordinator (2014-2015) for the Miami Dolphins, but he has been a quarterbacks coach in the National Football League for the Washington Redskins (2006-07), Seattle Seahawks (2008-09) and Philadelphia Eagles (2013) as well as the Bengals.

The Bengals scored nine points on three field goals during their loss to Houston Thursday night.

Zampese served as Bengals quarterbacks coach for 13 seasons before being named offensive coordinator past year when Hue Jackson left to coach the Cleveland Browns.

He was previously the team's quarterbacks coach, joining the team in 2003 as a member of head coach Marvin Lewis's first staff. Lewis added he's confident that the change in offensive coordinator will bring results by the next time the team takes the field on September 24 against the Green Bay Packers. Over those two games, Dalton threw four interceptions and lost a fumble while throwing for 394 total yards.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino reveals how Harry Kane saved his job
But Kane scored in the last minute and Pochettino believes that to be a turning point in his time at the club. "The truth is that Chelsea have been after me for a long time, but at the end, you know how this works".

"We're not getting the results we need to get", Lewis said.

But these Bengals are more or less full-powered, with Andy Dalton throwing passes and A.J. Green there to catch them.

Green just wants the team to play at the level he knows they are capable of.

Dalton arrived in Cincinnati much later, as the Bengals drafted the former TCU Horned Frog in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft.

"Trust me, things have happened very fast", Lazor said in a conference call Friday afternoon, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. "We are going to have to look at it and see what we can do differently".
