TAMPA, FLA. _ The Bengals turned to an old rival to help solve their most glaring problem Wednesday when they tapped Steelers receivers coach Bob Bratkowski to revive the NFL's lowest-rated pass offense.
Bratkowski, 45, who oversaw the league's top pass offense in 1997 as Dennis Erickson's offensive coordinator in Seattle, replaces the demoted Ken Anderson.
Anderson, the club's all-time passing leader, is now the quarterbacks coach.
"We're pleased to have a guy of Bob's experience," said Bengals President Mike Brown. "He's been around some excellent passing games and should be a big help to us."
Former Browns head coach Chris Palmer is apparently still in the mix for the coordinator job in Tampa and Houston.
