Bengals RB coach Jim Anderson retires

  •  

CINCINNATI (AP) - Jim Anderson has retired after spending the last 29 years as Cincinnati's running backs coach, the longest tenure of any Bengals coach.

Anderson joined the team in 1984 after coaching at various colleges. He worked under five Bengals head coaches - Sam Wyche, Dave Shula, Bruce Coslet, Dick LeBeau and Marvin Lewis.

Anderson said on Tuesday that he loves coaching, but it's time for a new challenge.

His streak of 29 years with one team was the longest in the NFL for any position coach. It's also a Bengals record for a coach, surpassing the 28 seasons that Kim Wood spent as conditioning coach before Lewis took over.

The coaching staff is set to return mostly intact following a second straight playoff appearance.
