Former Nebraska quarterback Zac Taylor has emerged as the Cincinnati Bengals top candidate for their head coaching job, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 



Taylor, who is currently the quarterback's coach for the Los Angeles Rams, was the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year at Nebraska in 2006.

A decision will not be made until after the Rams' season has ended. They play the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday in the NFC Divisional Round of the Playoffs.
