Reports say he "is leaving" after the season.

Hope they don't replace him with someone competent.

Leaving? Fired? Leaving?

His contract is up after the season, so "fired" isn't really appropriate.

I don't know how anyone can be expected to do better in that organization.

Not only is Lewis' contract up, but so are those of most, if not all, of the Bengals' assistant coaches. The Bengals have declined to give contract extensions to their assistant coaches, and some are unhappy with the way they have been treated financially, sources said.

Looks like this was the plan going into this season anyway. Can't say I'm surprised by the 'moving on' from the bungholes franchise. Lewis has underachieved and frankly I'm surprised he was allowed to stay this long. Could make another team a decent DC. Anyone on the staff the Steelers could be interested in?

This is terrible news. I wish he could’ve coached the bungles forever. Maybe they will hire Hue Jackson or Tomsula.

Todd Haley would make a good HC for the Bengals.

Is it just me or did it look like the life was sucked out of the Marvin Lewis. He just looks like a beaten and broken man. Was a very good defensive coordinator but I wonder if he can regain his love for the game.

It's not you. Probably sees this as a huge relief.

I think this would be an excellent choice.

That had no talent, and no FA's wanted to come play there. So they went dumpster diving on low-character guys, and built a competitive team. Problem is, you just don't build championship teams around players like that. They were competitive, but lacked the discipline and focus in games of any real consequence.

And Lewis often did that team no favors with some of his decision-making.

Don't gloat, I have a feeling Lewis may be the ghost of Tomlin future without a HOF QB.

I wonder if he is the longest tenured coach without winning a single playoff game in the history of the NFL.

Was some thought, seriously, that since his contract had expired, he would be a leading candidate for one of the other HC openings.

One of the more cheap and undeserving owners in the league.

From the message board after Marvin re-upping for 2 more:

37 minutes ago
BREAKING: Ben Roethlisberger announces he will be returning for two more seasons!

AND this:

How fitting. Marvin Lewis gets another extension after a losing season and Carson Palmer retires again.

The news that Marvin Lewis was rehired was so devastating it made Palmer quit again.


Too funny over there.
