Defensive Upgrade

Chuck Bresnahan was promoted to defensive coordinator by head Marvin Lewis on Wednesday. Bresnahan takes the place of Leslie Frazier, fired two weeks ago by Marvin Lewis.

Bresnahan brings many things to the table for the Cincinnati Bengals' defense. Bresnahan has been with Cleveland and Indianapolis before he left to Oakland, in fact, in 2000 Bresnahan was with the Raiders and Lewis with the Ravens and they bumped head in the AFC title game.

Later on during 2002, in his tenure with the Raiders, Bresnahan defensive was ranked second in the AFC and third in the NFL.
"I'm enthused about the future of our defense, and about the experience that Chuck brings us," Lewis said. "I have great confidence in his ability to oversee the development of a unit that has shown us a lot of potential."
