Bengals’ Dan Pitcher has three OC interviews lined up as Brian Callahan departs

Things are suddenly moving very fast for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Monday night, offensive coordinator Brian Callahan left to become the next head coach of the Tennessee Titans.

And while the instant analysis on that front says Dan Pitcher is the obvious next coordinator for the Bengals after years of training for the gig, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tossed some cold water on that.

Per Rapoport, Pitcher remains a hot commodity as well, with the Bengals quarterbacks coach meeting with the New England Patriots on Tuesday, the Las Vegas Raiders later the same day, then the New Orleans Saints on Thursday.

No great shock here. Pitcher had interest from other teams last year, but the Bengals stepped in and gave him an extension to keep him in town for this very reason.

It would seem likely that the Bengals do the same thing again here, though it will hinge on the front office making the right offer, quickly, given the trio of other teams interested.
