A second Cincinnati Bengals coach has refuted the weekend report by former Washington Redskins tight end Chris Cooley, with defensive coordinator Paul Guenther saying he would “absolutely” be back next year.

“I’m under contract here for next year,” Guenther said. “I don’t know about Cooley.”

Cooley had said on ESPN 980 in Washington that head coach Marvin Lewis will resign at the end of the season and that Guenther would be joining the Redskins staff under head coach and good friend Jay Gruden.
