Bengals add Mark Carrier to coach defensive backs

New York Jets 2011 Headshots

Mark Carrier made his name in the NFL as a hard-hitting, oft-suspended defensive back.  He’ll now get a chance to teach a new breed of cornerbacks and safeties to not do what he once did.

The Bengals have announced that Carrier will serve as the team’s defensive backs coach.

“Mark is a great choice for us as he moves back to his old position, coaching the defensive secondary,” head coach Marvin Lewis said in a team-issued release. “He experienced success as a coach with two fine NFL defenses, and he will do very well with our group.”

Carrier spent the last two seasons as the defensive line coach with the Jets.  Before that, he served for three seasons as defensive backs coach in Baltimore.  Carrier replaces Kevin Coyle, the new defensive coordinator of the Dolphins.

The Bengals also announced that Paul Guenther has been promoted to linebackers coach.
