Former Bengals offensive line coach interviewing for same position with another NFL team
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Former Bengals offensive line coach Paul Alexander, who opted to pursue other NFL opportunities after 24 seasons with the team, has apparently found one as he is reportedly interviewing for the offensive line coach position with the Dallas Cowboys.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported that the interview was taking place on Thursday.
Alexander served as Bengals offensive line coach under four different head coaches for the last 23 seasons, including all 15 that Marvin Lewis has been head coach.
Alexander had also been assistant head coach since 2003 when Lewis was hired as head coach.
Alexander began his tenure with the Bengals as tight ends coach in 1994 under then head coach Dave Shula. He was then moved to offensive line coach in 1995.
He remained in that position after Bruce Coslet replaced Shula following the seventh game of the 1996 season and then after Dick LeBeau replaced Coslet after three games of the 2000 season.
