Profootballtalk reports a "near mutiny" forced Bengals coach Marvin Lewis to fire OC Ken Zampese.
A source tells PFT's Mike Florio multiple players wanted Zampese gone, including A.J. Green, who called out the playcalling following Thursday's loss. Promoting Bill Lazor to offensive coordinator is a step in the right direction, but Lewis is clearly feeling pressure after embarrassing losses to open the season. Already in lame-duck status, Lewis could be on the hot seat if he doesn't turn things around. Sep 15 - 7:44 PM

Coach Marvin Lewis (blood clot) has already returned to the Bengals and will coach Friday's preseason opener.

Lewis had a blood clot in his ankle but got it treated and returned to work Tuesday night. He has a 118-103-3 career coaching record and is 0-7 in the playoffs.

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis is dealing with a blood clot in his ankle.

Per NFL Network's Stacey Dales, Lewis wanted to coach through the issue, but needs "bed rest." Lewis is taking medication to break up the clot. He should be back later this week.
Aug 8 - 6:32 PM

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis is missing time with a "minor health issue."

It's believed to be a leg ailment. Per the team, Lewis could be back as soon as "later this week." At this point, there's no reason not to take the team at its word. It shouldn't have a major effect on Bengals camp, as Lewis is more of a CEO-style coach, letting his coordinators and coaches handle the nitty gritty.

Contract-year Bengals coach Marvin Lewis isn't expecting an extension.

Lewis signed a one-year extension almost a year ago to the day. He said in January he would like another, though he now claims it's "not really a subject that's on my mind." North American coaches almost never head into the final year of a deal without an extension. Lewis has been in lockstep with owner Mike Brown since 2003, but perhaps Brown's patience is finally wearing thin.
Apr 6 - 6:34 PM

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said it's not "crucial" for him to sign a contract extension this offseason.

Lewis said he was hoping for an extension last month but so far there hasn't been any progress. "I don’t think it’s critical or crucial," said Lewis when asked about an extension. "If things work out we would look to do that." Lewis has yet to win a playoff game in his 14 years in Cincinnati. Heading into a contract year, 2017 could be make-or-break for Lewis.
Feb 26 - 11:30 AM

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said he's hoping for a contract extension.

Heading into his 15th season with the Bengals, Lewis' contract is up at the end of 2017. "We’d like to agree to something at some point," said Lewis. "It puts, I think, everybody’s mind at ease going forward for their futures." Despite seven postseason appearances, Lewis has never won a playoff game as a head coach. After missing the playoffs for the first time in five years this season, 2017 should be a make-or-break year for Lewis.
Jan 25 - 6:34 PM

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said he plans to coach the team in 2017.

This should put the retirement "rumors" to bed. There is still a chance the organization decides to move on after the Bengals' first playoff miss since 2010, especially considering Lewis' 0-7 mark in the postseason, but Lewis will likely be back on the sidelines next season.

ESPN reports Bengals coach Marvin Lewis expects to be back for the 2017 season.

Ex-Redskins TE Chris Cooley, now a radio talking head, for some reason started a rumor Lewis was planning to retire after 14 seasons. It's not true, though it doesn't mean Lewis is guaranteed to be back with the Bengals. Lewis is wrapping up the Bengals' first losing campaign since 2010. Infamously, Lewis is 0-7 in the playoffs as a head coach, but is probably unfairly maligned. As organizations like the Jaguars and Browns can attest, it's not just hard to find a Bill Belichick, but even a Marvin Lewis.

Bengals signed coach Marvin Lewis to a one-year extension through 2017.

The extension comes after reports surfaced ownership was noncommittal on Lewis' future. The new deal prevents him from lame-duck status, but doesn't completely remove Lewis off the hot seat. Lewis is winless in seven playoff games and has five-straight Wild Card losses. 2016 will be his 14th year with the Bengals.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports Bengals owner Mike Brown has grown impatient with coach Marvin Lewis.

"The big issue with Lewis is an obvious one: there have been no playoff victories," Cole said, "and there's a growing feeling within the organization that this is as good a team as the Bengals have ever had." Lewis has helped turn the Bengals into a perennial contender, but he is 0-7 in the playoffs including five straight Wild Card-round losses. Lewis is entering his contract year, and Brown was non-committal on his future earlier this offseason. Lewis probably needs a playoff breakthrough soon to keep his job. He has been with the Bengals since 2003.

Bengals owner Mike Brown was non-committal on coach Marvin Lewis' future with the club after 2016.

Lewis is entering the final year of his contract after signing a one-year extension last offseason. "He’s done remarkably well with our football team here, in recent years especially," Brown said. "I respect him. I like him personally. He’s going to be our coach this year. That’s in the bank. Where it goes, we’ll see how it plays out." Lewis has helped turn the Bengals into an annual contender, but he is 0-7 in the playoffs. Another playoff failure could prompt the Cincinnati to move on. Lewis is entering his 14th season with the Bengals.

Speaking Monday, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis confirmed he'll be back for 2016.

Lewis is coming off his seventh playoff loss in as many tries with the Bengals, but owner Mike Brown values continuity. The playoff losses are the headline, but Lewis' team has turned into an annual contender. 2016 will be his 14th season in Cincinnati.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bengals have "no plans" to fire coach Marvin Lewis.

Lewis' team collapsed in stupefying fashion Saturday — dropping him to 0-7 in the playoffs, including 0-5 over the past five years — but it's hardly surprising he won't be going anywhere. Lewis has more job security than a Supreme Court justice. The fact that Andy Dalton was sidelined Saturday also can't be ignored. 2016 will be Lewis' 14th season in Cincinnati.

Bengals signed coach Marvin Lewis to a one-year contract extension through 2016.

This has been standard procedure in recent seasons to avoid making Lewis a "lame duck" head coach. He's on the Tom Coughlin Plan and seems to control his own destiny in Cincinnati. Lewis, 56, is entering his 13th season atop the helm with the Bengals, but sports an ugly 0-6 postseason record.
