Head coach Marvin Lewis said he’s been impressed with how both Lazor and new defensive coordinator Teryl Austin run things during pratice, both from what he’s seen in Phase II of OTAs and the Friday session with the rookies.
While Lazor worked as the interim coordinator for the final 14 games last year, Austin has been on staff a little more than four months.

“He’s been very good with his ability to instill in the defensive players what he’s looking to see them do all the time,” Lewis said of Austin. “And his ability to coach the coaches from the front to the back is really important. I think that’s a key part of that key part of that coordinator position is to have an understanding of what you want to see done footwork wise from the front people all the way to the back end. Teryl has that kind of experience and you see it out there. I’m excited about that. I think that’s a great strength of his.”
The three-day rookie camp continues Saturday.
