A number of the candidates to be NFL coaches for the 2022-23 season have ties to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Former Bengals running back Eric Bieniemy, who has served as the Chiefs offensive coordinator since 2018, has interviewed with the Denver Broncos, the team announced.

The Bears confirmed interviewing Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, who was Cincinnati's defensive coordinator for two seasons starting in 2003. Saturday morning, the New York Giants announced they had spoken to Frazier. According to ESPN, Frazier also interviewed with the Miami Dolphins, as had former Bengals defensive backs coach Vance Joseph. Joseph currently serves as the Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator.

In addition to having a coaching vacancy, the Las Vegas Raiders are looking to hire a new general manager, and have interviewed Bengals scout Trey Brown for that position, according to a report from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
