Bengals quarterbacks coach Dan Pitcher popped up as a candidate for offensive coordinator openings this month, but the Bengals have reportedly moved to make sure that he sticks around Cincinnati a little longer.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Bengals signed Pitcher to a contract extension. Pitcher spoke with the Buccaneers about their opening this week and the Ravens had also expressed interest in speaking with him.

Pitcher is in his third year as the Bengals quarterbacks coach and he has been in the organization since 2016. He worked in scouting for the Colts before coming to the Bengals.

The Bengals will be moving on to contract talks with Pitcher’s top pupil once their season is over. Joe Burrow is eligible for an extension this offseason and locking him up figures to be a top offseason priority.

  1. Another example of how much things have changed in Cincinnati. Paying up to keep a QB coach is not something that would`ve happened before Burrow.

  2. Brandon Beane please take note how you hang on to your nucleus. Starts in the coaching room.

  3. After growing up in a baseball family…Dan Pitcher went against the grain and became a football coach.

  4. Baltimore has two rings. Bungle have zero, and will continue to have zero after today’s defeat.

  5. Joe Burrow getting his coaches paid and soon his receivers paid. Remember Joe Brady got contract extension after one season with Burrow.
