Could Childress be Bengals next O-coordinator?

Brad Childress Posted by Josh Katzowitz

At first, it was a Thursday dinner with Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, one that could be written off to old colleagues who became pals after they went on a USO Tour last offseason.

But the next day, it was a meeting with team officials, and suddenly, we have to wonder if former Vikings coach Brad Childress is actually a candidate to replace Bob Bratkowski as Bengals offensive coordinator.

We told you a few days ago about Lewis most likely bringing back Bratkowski for his 10th season, but I didn’t include this little snippet: when the Cincinnati Enquirer asked him if the same coaching staff that was flying to Mobile, Ala., to coach in the Senior Bowl was the same coaching staff that would return, Lewis said he couldn’t be sure.

“I think we still have a chance for change,” he told the paper. “We still have an opportunity to revise some things.”

Even if Childress isn’t hired and doesn’t coach this season, he’s still entitled to the $3 million per year the Vikings owe him in 2011 and 2012. Bratkowski is under contract for 2011.

He was a decent O coordinator at one time, but head coach he is not. Good luck with Chilly...bengels will need it.

Sure, every team needs a bald douchebag

Cincy has about 15, and needs to re-stock. Oh how I hope this happens. He's a failure coach, Cincy is just a failure. Perfect marriage.
