    CINCINNATI (AP) - The Cincinnati Bengals have hired Jemal Singleton from the Raiders to serve as their running backs coach, part of their latest moves to fill out Zac Taylor's staff.

    They added Joey Boese as strength and conditioning coach, and hired high school coach Doug Rosfeld as director of coaching operations.

    Boese and Rosfeld are in their 30s. Six of the eight members of the staff hired so far are in their 30s. The 35-year-old Taylor succeeded Marvin Lewis and is the Bengals' youngest coach since they hired 32-year-old Dave Shula in 1992.

    Singleton was the Raiders' running backs coach last season. Boese spent the last three seasons as strength and conditioning coach at Illinois. Rosfeld was the head football coach at Cincinnati's Moeller High School last season.
