The Bengals today named Frank Pollack as the team's offensive line coach and run game coordinator. Pollack, 53, previously served as the Bengals offensive line coach in 2018, before spending the last two seasons ('19-20) with the N.Y. Jets.
Under Pollack's direction in 2018, Cincinnati's offensive line ranked 11th in the NFL in fewest sacks allowed per game (2.3), while also paving the way for HB Joe Mixon to log career-highs in rushing yards (1168), average yards per attempt (4.9) and rushing TDs (eight).
"Frank will help us make great strides in the run game and protections," said head coach Zac Taylor. "He brings great technical skills in player development and his familiarity with some of our current offensive linemen will allow him to get to work right away. We interviewed several strong candidates to get the best outcome for our team. I am excited about the experience Frank brings to our offense."
"Coach Pollack is a high energy guy and we're excited to work with him again," said C Trey Hopkins. "We know the kind of work he expects and the kind of results we can achieve. He demands a lot and is very clear with his instructions. He is a great coach to play for."
"I am super excited for Coach Pollack to be back," said Mixon. "He's proven he's the best in the business. There are a lot of records to be broken. I'm looking forward to getting back on the field and getting to work."
Pollack replaces Jim Turner, who served as Cincinnati's offensive line coach from 2019-20.
