Marvin Lewis was hired in 2003 and in the 11 years since, the Bengals have had just two losing seasons to go along with five playoff appearances. It's a remarkable feat for an outfit that never won more than six games from 1998-2002. And on Friday, the team extended Lewis' deal through the 2015 season.
"We are one of only five teams to qualify for the playoffs the last three years, and our prospects are bright looking ahead. Marvin is driven to achieve more, and we are happy to secure his leadership of our team beyond the coming season."
Lewis arrived in Cincinnati after stops in Baltimore and Washington where he served as defensive coordinator. He is 90-85-1 but remains winless in the postseason.
"I'm blessed to continue to do a job I love here in Cincinnati, and with the Bengals organization," Lewis said in a statement. "I truly appreciate the commitment by our management to continue to enable us to build an NFL championship team."
