Cincinnati Bengals director of football operations Jim Lippincott has announced his pending retirement early next year.
The scouting veteran has been with the Bengals since 1992.
He plans to be the defensive coordinator at Cincinnati Moeller High School.
Lippincott plans to help the Bengals prepare for the NFL draft in April for the first couple months of 2012.
"Jim has been a valued member of our front office for some 20 years, working as both a scout and as an administrator," Bengals owner Mike Brown said. "His work at Moeller is where his heart takes him now, but I thank him for all he has done here over the years and wish him only the very best. Jim will still be very much in the Bengals picture as we head toward this year's draft."
A native of Lima, Ohio, Lippincott holds degrees from Xavier University and the University of Dayton. He first came to Moeller High School in 1981 as defensive coordinator. He added the role of athletic director in 1988. He worked as both an administrator and a coach until he left in 1992 to join the Bengals.
"First and foremost, I want to express my love for Mike Brown, and to thank him for giving me the opportunity to work for the Bengals," Lippincott said. "The experience has been challenging and rewarding. I will leave remembering not just the results of the games, but for the priceless professional associations and friendships I've been blessed to make."
