Anderson joined the team in 1984 after coaching at various colleges. He worked under five Bengals head coaches - Sam Wyche, Dave Shula, Bruce Coslet, Dick LeBeau and Marvin Lewis.

Anderson said on Tuesday that he loves coaching, but it's time for a new challenge.

His streak of 29 years with one team was the longest in the NFL for any position coach. It's also a Bengals record for a coach, surpassing the 28 seasons that Kim Wood spent as conditioning coach before Lewis took over.

The coaching staff is set to return mostly intact following a second straight playoff appearance.
