  • Marvin Lewis, Bengals planning to mutually part ways

National Football League insider Adam Schefter reports that Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis plans on leaving the team after this season.

Citing unnamed league sources, ESPN reported before Cincinnati's game at Minnesota on Sunday that the 59-year-old Lewis would like to continue in the NFL after 15 seasons with the Bengals.

Lewis has been Cincinnati's head coach since 2003.

Through the first 13 games this season, Lewis has a 123-111-3 record.




Lewis is the NFL's second-longest tenured head coach. With head coaching jobs likely to open up across the league this offseason, chances are Lewis will be a fairly hot commodity for teams looking to reboot their staffs. He trails just Bill Belichick, who's been the New England Patriots head coach since 2000. Lewis is also interested in working in another organization's front office or as a coaching adviser.

Lewis opted to enter 2017 - as he sometimes did in previous seasons - on the final year of his contract, but this time he is planning to leave Cincinnati, according to the report.

The Bengals now sit with a record of 5-8, and have been all but eliminated from playoff contention, and are 12.5-point underdogs this week against the Minnesota Vikings.
