Report: Bengals to finalize new coach’s deal Monday

The Cincinnati Bengals should finally have a new coach — officially — this week.

ESPN reported shortly after the Los Angels Rams lost the Super Bowl 13-3 to the New England Patriots that Zac Taylor will head to Cincinnati on Monday morning to finish a process that started nearly a month ago.

That is when the first reports the Bengals want to hire the Rams quarterbacks coach surfaced.

He will be introduced Tuesday in the Queen City.
