The Cincinnati Bengals have had to do some shuffling of coaches on the defensive side of the ball after assistant coach Kevin Coyle left to go to Miami to be the defensive coordinator of the Dolphins.

The team has hired former New York Jets assistant coach Mark Carrier as their new defensive backs coach, filling Coyle’s vacancy.

Carrier was an NFL safety for 11 years with the Bears, Lions & Redskins. He  spent the past six years as an assistant coach with the Ravens as defensive backs coach for four and two years as the defensive line coach of the Jets.

The Bengals also gave a promotion to Paul Guenther to linebackers coach replacing Jeff FitzGerald.

Guenther has been with Cincinnati in various coaching roles for the past eight years. Last year, he spent time with the special teams and defensive backs.

Mike Zimmer is still the defensive coordinator.

ANDERSON, Ind. – Defiance College placed four players in double figures but was no match for the interior strength of Anderson College on Wednesday evening, falling by an 82-72 margin to the Ravens.

The host Anderson squad took the lead for good at 6-5 and stayed in front over the final 37:22 of action, leading by as many as 21 points in the second half. Defiance closed the game on a 17-6 spurt over the final 6:14 of action but fell short in its comeback bid.

Anderson (9-9, 5-6 HCAC) had its way in the paint, pulling down 18 offensive rebounds en route to a 31-13 gap in second-chance points in the contest. For the game, DC was beaten on the boards by a 45-26 mark.

Another key disparity came at the free throw line, where Defiance did not attempt a free throw until the 7:08 mark of the final period and ended the game with only two makes from the charity stripe. The host squad countered by getting to the line 20 times in the game and connecting on 18 of those tries for a 16-point spread.

Ryan Hicks turned in one of his finest performances of the year in the losing effort, ending with 12 points, nine rebounds, three blocks, a pair of steals and one assist in 29 minutes of work. Other contributors included Logan Wolfrum’s 15 points, five assists, two blocks and two steals and Anthony Brown, who chipped in 14 points and four boards.

Defiance (7-11, 3-8 HCAC) will head to Lexington, Ky., on Saturday to tangle with the league-leading Transylvania Pioneers (16-2, 10-1 HCAC) in a 3:00 pm.

Houshmandzadeh still trying to hook on with another team; 49ers giving him a look

When the Seattle Seawhawks signed Tourjay Jacoby (TJ) Houshmandzadeh on March 2, 2009 to a $40 million contract for 5 years, most people felt he made a mistake leaving the Cincinnati Bengals, where he was the leading receiver and was QB Carson Palmer’s favorite receiver.

TJ at the time said that he wanted to win some games because Cincinnati was always a loser.

Well his career has been in limbo ever since that time. He played last year in Baltimore and tried to hook on this summer with the New York Giants and the New England Patriots to no avail.

According to published reports, the possession-type receiver is being worked out by the San Francisco 49ers.

Houshmandzadeh, who is 34-years-old, signed a one-year contract with the Ravens after being cut by the Seattle Seahawks, he was a backup player behind starters Anquan Boldin and Derrick Mason and caught 30 passes for 398 yards and three touchdowns.

The California native in his career has caught 616 passes for 7,091 yards and 43 touchdowns.

43rd Bengals season closes in Baltimore with 13-7 loss

The Cincinnati Bengals ended a very disappointing season at 4-12 in Baltimore.

The Bengals playing without several starters stayed with the Ravens, but couldn’t pull off the upset and lost 13-7.

Under head coach Marvin Lewis, the Bengals 2010 season was the third losing season in four years and second time in three seasons that the team has suffered double-digit losses.

Cincinnati finished last in the AFC North for the first time since 2002, will have the fourth pick in the NFL draft. It’ll be the third time in four years, the Bengals are selecting in the top 10.

QB Carson Palmer finished 32 of 45 for 305 yards and a touchdown, but he suffered two interceptions and a fumble. This was the fourth time he has thrown for 300 + yards on the season, all losses.

WR Jerome Simpson, Palmer’s new deep threat, became the fifth receiver in team history to have 12 or more catches in a game, had 12 for 123 yards but also lost two fumbles. Simpson has shown that he will be a threat in 2011.

Simpson’s teammate on the other side, WR Andre Caldwell caught 7 balls for 94 yards and has shown he is a deep threat as well to go along with Chad Ochocinco probably becoming an intermediate receiver.

The Bengals did end the season strong winning 2 of their last 3.

Baltimore beats Cleveland 20-10

There was no surprise that the Ravens beat the Browns in Cleveland Stadium on Sunday, 20-10. But the surprise was the bad strategy decided upon by Browns head coach Eric Mangini.

The Browns kicked a field goal at the end of the first half, just to keep the ball away from the Baltimore Ravens.

On the second half kickoff, trailing by three points, Cleveland tried to trick the Ravens with an onsides kick which failed to go the required 10 yards. The Ravens got the ball in good field position, at the Browns 38 and three plays later they scored to put the game away for good.

The Browns are now 5-10 on the season and 10-21 under Eric Mangini, who is on the hot seat again.

Rookie quarterback Colt McCoy threw three interceptions in his worst performance in his seventh game as a starter.

There was also a fumble by wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi.

The Browns did score for the second straight on a trick play as Massaquoi using a receiver razzle-dazzle option pass, found  Brian Robiske, who circled behind cornerback Chris Carr and cradled the ball while hitting the turf. The replay showed the ball was caught and touchdown.

The Ravens, now 11-4, sewed up a wild card berth in the playoffs but can be division champs if the Browns can pull off an upset of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
