Lewis came to the Bengals as the ninth coach in franchise history after serving as defensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins (2002) and Baltimore Ravens (1996-2001).

Marvin Lewis will reportedly be leaving the Cincinnati Bengal after the 2017 season after 15 years as the team's head coach.

After 15 seasons in Cincinnati, Marvin Lewis is planning to leave the Bengals after this season to pursue opportunities elsewhere, league sources tell ESPN. They will head to Green Bay on Saturday to face a Packers team that might not have much to play for after losing at Carolina in Aaron Rodgers' return, and they'll finish the regular season at home against Chicago on December 30. According to NFL Media's Tom Pelissero, two in-house coaches have emerged as potential candidates to replace Lewis. Including the Bengals winning the rest of their games this season.

The Pennsylvania native had previously talked about how he realized jobs like this don't last forever. "I think we all accept that".

Lewis, 59, entered 2017 on the final year of his contract.

With three games left in the season, Lewis is the second-longest tenured coach in the National Football League, behind only Bill Belichick.

Most of the Bengals' assistant coaches contracts also are up as the Bengals have declined to give them extensions and some are unhappy with the way they have been treated financially, sources told ESPN.

Three years earlier, the New England Patriots hired Bill Belichick - beginning a run that now includes five Super Bowl wins.

The Bengals now sit with a record of 5-8, and have been all but eliminated from playoff contention, and are 12.5-point underdogs this week against the Minnesota Vikings. Kickoff between the Bengals and Vikings is set for 1 PM Eastern time.
