The first news around the fate of Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor’s coaching staff has gone public ahead of the team’s Week 17 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

According to Elise Jesse of AllBengals, Jim Turner, Nick Eason and Gerald Chatman won’t return to the team in 2021. ESPN’s Ben Baby confirmed the news.

Eason, the defensive line coach, had a strong showing from his unit amid a wealth of injuries, so it’s a little surprising to hear the team told him he won’t be brought back.

Turner, on the other hand, was 100 percent expected. Controversy chased Turner to the Bengals and over two seasons his line has done little to improve.

Per Jesse’s report, team ownership told Taylor his staff needed to undergo certain changes or bigger changes could end up happening.

At this point, it’s safe to presume these are the first of many changes around Taylor on both sides of the football.
