Bengals coach Zac Taylor said there was no deadline to hire a defensive coordinator, even with the NFL scouting combine just days away. Lou Anarumo was announced as the new DC Thursday. Taylor said: "This thing could've gone as long as it needed to go to be truthful. We don't play a game until September. Obviously there's a personnel side of things that needs to be taken care of because of the draft but I just wanted to make sure that this is a long term hire. This guy is going to do great things here and so we wanted to make sure that no matter how many days it took, we were going to find the right person, and today just happened to be that day."
