Update: No change

Posted: 4:15 p.m.

MOBILE, Ala. - With the NFL converging Monday on the Senior Bowl, there appeared to be no change in the Bengals coaching situation.

Falcons offensive coordinator Hue Jackson, who has drawn interest from the Bengals, and Bengals quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese, who has interviewed for the Rams offensive coordinator job, showed up for the first day of practice with name tags of their current employers.

Jackson, the former Bengals receivers coach, has also interviewed for the Rams coordinator job.

The Bengals also apparently went to the first Senior Bowl workout without a linebackers coach. Names linked to the Bengals in that search from outside sources have been Dolphins linebackers and assistant coach George Edwards and Glenn Pires.

Sources not in the Bengals' division who are at the Senior Bowl said Rex Ryan's status could affect Cincinnati if the Bengals are also interested in Ravens linebackers coach Jeff FitzGerald. If Ryan gets the head coaching job in Atlanta or remains as the Ravens defensive coordinator, as is new Baltimore coach John Harbaugh's stated wish, FitzGerald would conceivably stay with Ryan.

The sources linked his name to the Bengals because of head coach Marvin Lewis' regard for the 47-year-old FitzGerald, a 14-year NFL veteran that has coached Ryan's prolific linebackers the past four seasons.
