Lions' D-coordinator Teryl Austin departs for Cincinnati

Cincinnati Bengals negotiating with Detroit Lions' Austin for defensive coordinator

After spending the previous four seasons as defensive coordinator for the Detroit Lions, Teryl Austin accepted the same position with the Cincinnati Bengals, the team announced Monday.

Austin was the Ravens' defensive backs coach before joining the Lions as defensive coordinator in 2014.

Per the report, Austin's title with the Raiders would be assistant head coach/defensive backs coach.

The Bengals hired Bob Bicknell to coach their wide receivers, the team announced Monday. He previously spent three seasons as the Ravens' secondary coach. Bicknell, who spent last season at Baylor, was an assistant in the National Football League from 2007-16. Bicknell comes to the Bengals with 25 years of coaching experience in college and the NFL.

The Bengals saw Austin's defense up close on Christmas Eve, with Andy Dalton & Co. tallying 26 points and 28 first downs en route to a win that knocked Detroit out of playoff contention. He has been on Jim Caldwell's staff with the Lions since 2014 but has reportedly been itching to become a head coach. Vikings coach Mike Zimmer held the job for six seasons before Guenther.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Austin was a candidate to replace Caldwell, whom the Lions fired a week ago, but he withdrew himself from consideration in order to join the Bengals. After that Detroit's defense spiraled downhill, ranking 18th, 18th and 27th in yards allowed from 2015-17.

"I am excited to add Teryl to our coaching staff as defensive coordinator", said head coach Marvin Lewis in a news release.
