The Cincinnati Bengals have hired Jemal Singleton as their new running backs coach, according to multiple reports, giving the team two new assistant coaches who were recently lured over from the Oakland Raiders.
The Bengals hired former Raiders quarterbacks coach Brian Callahan on Thursday as their new offensive coordinator.
Singleton was a running backs coach with the Raiders for one season. He was previously the Indianapolis Colts' running backs coach from 2016-17. Prior to coaching in the NFL, he served as an assistant at Arkansas, Oklahoma State and Air Force, where he spent nine seasons before departing after the 2010 season.
Singleton is a former running back at Air Force, where he gained 941 yards and four touchdowns over three seasons (1996-98). He helped the Falcons win 10 games in consecutive seasons for the first time in school history and was a two-time team captain.
