Bengals hire Giants' Lou Anarumo as defensive coordinator

CINCINNATI (AP) Lou Anarumo was working on the New York Giants' offseason plans when he got a call from an old friend from Miami. Zac Taylor wondered if he would be interested in discussing the job as the Cincinnati Bengals' defensive coordinator.

A week later, he got the job, ending the Bengals' lengthy search for someone to handle the defense.

Anarumo was hired Thursday as the Bengals' fourth defensive coordinator in the last three years, an indication of how much they have struggled with that unit. Head coach Marvin Lewis took over the role midway through last season after Teryl Austin was fired, and Lewis was let go at the end of the season.
