Bengals hire Detroit's Austin as defensive coordinator

CINCINNATI (AP) The Cincinnati Bengals have hired Teryl Austin as defensive coordinator.

Austin spent the past four seasons as Detroit's defensive coordinator, but his future was in doubt after the Lions fired coach Jim Caldwell last week .

"I am excited to add Teryl to our coaching staff as defensive coordinator," Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. "He is a bright and aggressive coach with a wealth of experience. I look forward to working alongside him to take full advantage of our talented defensive personnel."
