Cincinnati Bengals Fire Head Coach Marvin Lewis After 16 Seasons

Marvin Lewis was fired as Bengals head coach

However, the Bengals never won a playoff game even during their peak under Lewis, sliding into the purgatory of mediocrity in the seasons following that career-high 12-win season.

After 16 tumultuous seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, the team has fired head coach Marvin Lewis after another disappointing year that saw them finish last in their division.

Joseph's two seasons in charge featured a record of 11 wins and 21 losses.

Marvin Lewis was once at the helm of a consistent victor, guiding the Cincinnati Bengals to four straight seasons with at least 10 wins, including a 12-win campaign in 2015. The Broncos went 6-10 this season, losing their last four games.

A native of McDonald, PA, Lewis joined the Bengals in 2003 after establishing himself as a defensive coordinator first with the Baltimore Ravens (1996-2001), with whom he won Super Bowl XXXV, and then with Washington.

"I want to thank the Bengals' organization, the fans and the city of Cincinnati for their support", Lewis said in the statement.

Ask anyone within a 50-mile radius of Cleveland, or honestly just a television in the last three years, and they would probably express a decent amount of skepticism that Hue Jackson gets an National Football League head coaching job in the near future.

"I regret I haven't been able to provide them with the number one goal of being world champions". Since 2015, the Bengals have a losing record, and they finished off the 2018 season at 6-10 after initially looking like a playoff team in the competitive AFC North.

Miami didn't see enough progress, so it chose to dump Gase after his three seasons at the helm.

Lewis ends his Bengals tenure with an overall mark of 131-122-3.

Arizona apparently has seen enough and opted to part ways with Wilks, who becomes the first one-and-done coach since the 49ers fired Chip Kelly in 2016.
