The Cardinals hired Kingsbury, and now it looks like the Bengals are primed to hire a direct understudy of the Rams head coach.

Los Angeles Rams quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor is the Cincinnati Bengals' top choice to be their next head coach, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen.

Here is the latest news and rumors concerning coaching vacancies in the NFL.

Taylor was the University of Cincinnati offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2016.

According to ProFootballTalk, Taylor, who is the Rams QB coach, is the man the Bengals are zeroed in on, but won't be able to hire him until the season is over for Los Angeles. In 2017, Taylor was a wide receivers coach and directed a unit that saw the development of Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp into reliable receivers.

Taylor's Rams are still in the playoffs and face off with the Cowboys on Saturday in the NFC Divisional Round.

He also spent time with the Dolphins as an assistant quarterbacks coach and interim offensive coordinator.

Another note about this hire is that owner and general manager Mike Brown was not involved in choosing the next head coach. It will be interesting to see if this is a norm for the organization moving forward, and is something that Bengals fans will want to keep their eye on.

At the very least, multiple outlets argued, there's one indisputable fact about Taylor that should make fans very happy: He's not Hue Jackson.
