Bengals keep another assistant

The Cincinnati Bengals are moving quickly to retain their coaching staff.

Just one day after retaining defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, ESPN's John Clayton reports the Bengals also re-signed longtime offensive line coach Paul Alexander to a three-year deal. Alexander has been with the Bengals since 2002.

Coming off 10 wins, a playoff appearance and division title, Cincinnati's coaches have garnered some attention this offseason. Clayton reports Alexander received interest from the Washington Redskins, who also were reportedly interested in Zimmer.

In addition, Bengals quarterback coach Ken Zampese is considered a hot candidate for Chicago Bears' opening at offensive coordinator.
