Bengals extend Zac Taylor’s contract through 2026

Cincinnati extended coach Zac Taylor’s contract through the 2026 season after he led the Bengals to their first Super Bowl appearance in 33 years.

Financial terms were not announced.

In his third year with the team, Taylor guided Cincinnati to a 10-7 finish in the regular season as well as playoff victories over the Las Vegas Raiders, Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs before falling 23-20 to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday in Super Bowl LVI in Inglewood, Calif.

“Zac has come into the league and worked to develop the foundations for a winning program that can be successful over time,” Bengals president Mike Brown said in a statement on Wednesday. “The fruits of Zac’s efforts were seen this year, and Zac is well-regarded by our players and coaches.

“I know the effort and passion Zac brings to the building and to our team, and I am pleased by his approach. And I think the city of Cincinnati sees him the way the players and I do. He’s brought excitement to the town and deserves credit and recognition for that.”

Taylor, 38, was entering the final season of the original four-year contract he signed in 2019. The Bengals were 6-25-1 in his first two seasons before winning the AFC North for the first time since 2015.
