The Bengals today signed head coach Zac Taylor to a contract extension through the 2026 season.

"Zac has come into the league and worked to develop the foundations for a winning program that can be successful over time," said Bengals president Mike Brown. "The fruits of Zac's efforts were seen this year, and Zac is well-regarded by our players and coaches. I know the effort and passion Zac brings to the building and to our team, and I am pleased by his approach. And I think the city of Cincinnati sees him the way the players and I do. He's brought excitement to the town and deserves credit and recognition for that."

Taylor in 2021 led Cincinnati to a 10-7 regular-season record, an AFC North title, an AFC Championship and a berth in Super Bowl LVI. He now enters his fourth season at the helm in Cincinnati, after being named the 10th head coach in team history on Feb. 4, 2019.
