NFL’s Bengals extend coach Lewis’ contract
CINCINNATI — Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis has signed a one-year contract extension, keeping him on the job through the 2015 season.
Lewis has led the Bengals to three straight playoff berths, a first for the franchise that began play in 1968. But the Bengals are 0-5 in the playoffs under Lewis.
His 90 career victories are the most in Bengals history by 26 over Sam Wyche (64). His record is 90-85-1 in the regular season.
Lewis, 55, said Friday: “I’m blessed to continue to do a job I love here in Cincinnati. ... I truly appreciate the commitment by our management to continue to enable us to build an NFL championship team.”
