NFL Coach, pianist, author, speaker
Coach Paul Alexander, a 35 year veteran NFL and major college football coach began his professional work after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in education from SUNY Cortland, where he was an Academic All American football player. Coaching stops at Penn State, the University of Michigan and Central Michigan preceded his first NFL coaching assignment with the New York Jets in 1991. For the next 23 years he was the offensive line coach of the Cincinnati Bengals where he helped set a number of NFL and club records … it’s a tenure unheard of in modern day coaching cycles. In 2015 Alexander was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated in its article: “The Mozart behind the Bengals 6-0 record”. In 2017, Pro Football Focus revealed statistics that his offensive lines ranked #1 statistically in pass protection over the 11 year life of the measure; also in 2017, he was once again recognized by Sports Illustrated as the top offensive line coach in the business and named to their “Dream Team Coaching Staff”. In 2018, Alexander joined the Dallas Cowboys as their offensive line coach.
