Marvin Lewis, Bengals planning to mutually part ways

Marvin Lewis, Bengals planning to mutually part ways

Remember, the Bengals don't have a general manager, so that position won't have any say in a potential new coach.

- Marvin Lewis, the longest tenured head coach in Cincinnati Bengals history, has chose to step down after the 2017 season, sources told ESPN Sunday.

Mike Zimmer was about ready to be done with his quest to become an National Football League head coach, discouraged after so many fruitless interviews.

Hired in 2003, Lewis has been the NFL's second-longest tenured head coach behind Patriots' Bill Belichick.

The Vikings clinched the NFC North title on Sunday.

There's a reason Lewis lasted for 15 years with the Bengals despite winning zero playoff games and that reason is because Brown is loyal and also loves having a coach he's familiar with.

"I just addressed in there", he said, referring to the locker room.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that multiple members of the organization, including coaches, learned of Lewis' decision as they boarded a bus in Minneapolis for the Bengals' game Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Football is a very emotional game and we as managers are not always in dressing room after the game. He asked Sky Sports' Patrick Davison what he thought of the challenge.

Defensive coordinator Paul Guenther, the linebackers coach when Zimmer departed, is still close to his former mentor and attended his daughter's wedding this summer. The Bengals nearly never go outside the organization to make a hire, which is why it will be interesting to watch their coaching search take place.

"Everything I've learned under him I've carried over", Guenther said. Zimmer left his previous job as the Bengals defensive coordinator to become the Vikings head coach. The question now is if they can muster some positive emotion to compete with a likely playoff-bound foe.

Minnesota's offense has struggled at times in the first quarter, scoring 46 total points in 13 games.

The 6-foot-6, 303-pound Hill, plucked off Jacksonville's practice squad midway through last season, has been a good find for a Vikings team that badly needed depth at both tackle spots after the injury-ravaged mess in 2016.
