Bengals sign Marvin Lewis to one-year contract extension

The Cincinnati Bengals have signed coach Marvin Lewis to a one-year contract extension through the 2016 season. Lewis is in his 13th season with the Bengals. The Bengals have made the playoffs four years in a row and five of the past six seasons. “We have worked together with Marvin for many years, things are going well for the team, and Marvin deserves credit for that,” Bengals president Mike Brown said. “The extension reflects our confidence in him and how things look to us as we move forward. We are happy to have reached this agreement.” “I appreciate the commitment by management to the direction of our team,” Lewis said. “It’s gratifying to our coaching staff and to me personally. The stakes get higher each and every year, and the return of our players this week for the start of offseason work has stoked our fires. I’m excited to continue our pursuit of greatness and to be World Champions.” Lewis’ 100 career victories (record 100-96-2) are the most by any Bengals head coach by a margin of 36 over Sam Wyche (64 wins in eight seasons).
