Defensive Backs Coach

Bio

Kevin Coyle, defensive backs coach. Coyle was an 11-year member of the Bengals defensive staff (2001-11) before departing in 2012 to become defensive coordinator of the Miami Dolphins.  Coyle served as Dolphins coordinator from 2012 through Oct. 8, 2015. The Dolphins had back-to-back top 10 finishes in the NFL in fewest points allowed in 2012 and 2013, finishing seventh in ’12 and eighth in ’13. Both of those units had more than 40 sacks.

 Coyle spent his first two Bengals seasons as cornerbacks coach and was promoted to defensive backs coach in 2003. In Coyle’s nine seasons as a Bengals DBs coach (2003-11), the defense ranked fifth in the NFL in interceptions (160), and 133 of those were by DBs.

 With Coyle as his position coach in 2005, CB Deltha O’Neal set a Bengals record with 10 INTs, tied for first in the NFL, and DBs had 23 of Cincinnati’s league-leading 31 INTs.
