Article highlights and more after the jump...

The 42-year old is regarded as an up and comer and he also has been considered for other offensive coordinator jobs over the last couple of years.

Zampese has spent seven seasons with the Bengals.  Prior to that, he worked as an assistant on the Rams staff for Mike Martz with Smith.  A separate league source said Martz, figuring his chances to become Bears offensive coordinator were limited, recommended Zampese to Smith.  Martz also had recommended Zampese to Lewis.

Zampese's father Ernie Zampese is a longtime NFL assistant coach and offensive coordinator who worked for the Cowboys, Chargers, Rams and Patriots.
