Kyle Caskey is in his fourth season on the Bengals coaching staff, and this season is in the role of assistant offensive line/quality control coach. Caskey and line coach Paul Alexander last season directed a steady offensive line performance, despite injuries and some inexperience.

The ’12 line weathered injury problems at center and left guard. Projected No. 1 LG Travelle Wharton was lost for the season to a knee injury in the first preseason game, and No. 1 C Kyle Cook suffered a serious ankle injury in the third preseason contest. But Alexander and Caskey had a replacement groomed for the LG spot in second-year pro Clint Boling, who started every game. And at center, they worked to quickly develop Trevor Robinson into a promising performance before Cook was able to return for the last four games and the Wild Card playoff contest. Caskey did the bulk of the scouting work prior to the signing of Robinson, who wound up turning in one of the better rookie performances by an undrafted free agent in Bengals history.  

Elsewhere on the line, the situation was more stable. LT Andrew Whitworth earned his first Pro Bowl berth and remained one of the team’s top leaders. RT Andre Smith, held back early in his career by injuries, started every game for the first time and began earning leaguewide notice for the abilities that made him a first-round draft pick in 2009. And at RG, rookie Kevin Zeitler started every game after being drafted in the first round.

Caskey came to Cincinnati from the University of Mississippi, where he served in 2009 as a defensive assistant working with safeties and quality control. In addition to his on-field work, he handled all opponent offensive breakdowns and scouting report materials.

Caskey entered college coaching in 2004 at Louisiana-Monroe as a graduate assistant. He coached safeties in 2004 and linebackers in ’05. In 2005, the Warhawks were Sun Belt Conference co-champions.

From 2006-08, Caskey was at Indiana State. In 2008, he coached the TEs and RBs while also serving as recruiting coordinator. The ’08 ISU recruit class was ranked seventh among NCAA FCS teams by Rivals.com. He was TE/WRs coach at Indiana State in 2006, and was defensive line coach/recruiting coordinator in ’07.

He has earned a bachelor’s degree in industrial distribution from Texas A&M, and he holds master’s degrees from both A&M (agribusiness) and Louisiana-Monroe (instructional technology).

Caskey is married (wife Kayla), and his hometown is Daingerfield, Texas. He played tight end at Texas A&M in 1997-98, and while he was on the team, the Aggies won a Big 12 championship (1998) and played in the Cotton and Sugar bowls.

He was a four-year Aggie letterman in track and field from 1999-2002, including 2000 All-Big 12 honors in the discus. He earned Big 12 All-Academic honors three times — in 2000, ’01 and ’02.
