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. Apr 8 - 6:02 PM

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.

The Bengals were awarded extra third- and fourth-round compensatory picks in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Cincinnati was one of the three teams, including the Patriots and Chiefs, awarded an extra third-rounder. The Bengals are never major players in free agency, and they were awarded extra picks for losing RE Michael Johnson and OT Anthony Collins last offseason. Johnson and Collins, of course, were both cut by the Bucs after one year in Tampa, and Johnson ended up back in Cincinnati. The Ravens also did well, earning an extra fourth-rounder and two fifths.

Bengals signed coach Marvin Lewis to a one-year contract extension through 2015.

Lewis, 55, has been at the helm in Cincinnati since 2003 and is the second-longest tenured head coach in the league, behind only Bill Belichick. Unfortunately for the Bengals and Lewis, he hasn't had nearly the success. Lewis owns a career 90-85-1 regular season record to go along with an 0-5 mark in the playoffs. He checked in as our own Patrick Daugherty's 12th-best head coach. Daugherty's entire coaching ranks are accessible at the link below.

HBO confirmed Monday that the Bengals will be the featured team on this year's edition of Hard Knocks.

It will be the Bengals' second appearance on the popular training camp reality show after they were featured in 2009. Clubs are famously leery of appearing on the program out of fear it will be a "distraction," but two of the past three featured teams have gone on to make the playoffs, including the 2009-10 Bengals.
