After an enigmatic start to the season, the Bengals have announced that Ken Zampese is out as the team's offensive coordinator. Zampese, who came to the team 15 seasons ago as the quarterbacks coach, will be replaced by Bill Lazor, the team's current quarterbacks coach.
It will continue to be that way for the Bengals, it seems, at least for the foreseeable future, especially after Lewis voiced his support for Dalton following the team's 13-9 home loss to the Houston Texans on Thursday.
The Cincinnati Bengals have not scored a touchdown through two games.
Not only did the Bengals lose their opener Sunday, they were blown out at home by the division rival Ravens, losing 20-0 with quarterback Andy Dalton turning in one of his worst performances as a pro (four interceptions and a lost fumble).
Zampese served as Bengals quarterbacks coach for 13 seasons before being named offensive coordinator in 2016 when Hue Jackson left to coach the Cleveland Browns.
Lewis is surely hoping a change in the coaching staff can spark the offense moving forward, but likely feels his own seat warming up, especially since he's in the final year of his contract.More news: India calls Rohingya refugees 'threat to national security'

The Bengals still do not have any touchdowns and they have played one eighth of their entire 2017 National Football League schedule.
If Cincinnati struggles again, it's safe to say Green will only grow more frustrated with the way things are going.
Green just wants the team to play at the level he knows they are capable of. Also, Marvin Lewis has been the coach since 2003. The offensive line has not held up the way the Bengals hoped it might. Last year, the Buffalo Bills fired Greg Roman after a loss to the Jets.
Green said, "We are playing like sh- right now".
When asked if he thought the Bengals offense had been in a rut for the past two seasons, Green said the lack of scoring said a lot.
