Marvin Lewis has been with the Cincinnati Bengals for 15 years and it appears that the beleaguered head coach is going stay in Cincy for at least for another two years. Today, the Bengals announced that he had re-signed Lewis to a two-year deal despite earlier reports that indicated the team was interested in moving on and were set to bring a new coach this offseason.
Marvin Lewis isn’t done in Cincinnati yet.
The Bengals announced on Tuesday that Lewis has agreed to a new deal to remain as the team’s head coach through the 2019 season.
Reports near the end of the regular season indicated that Lewis had decided to move on after 15 years on the sideline for the Bengals. There was no immediate announcement about his plans at the end of the season, however, and Lewis has spent the last couple of days meeting with Bengals owner Mike Brown about next steps.
Of course the Cincy faithful were fucking irate when they learned that the team was bringing back Lewis and took to Twitter to vent out their frustrations.
In 15 years I will probably be dead and Marvin Lewis will probably still be the coach of the Bengals.
