Hired by the Bengals in 2003, Lewis is the second longest-tenured head coach in the NFL today and his 100 regular season wins are the most in franchise history. This past year he became the first head coach in team history to lead the team to four consecutive winning seasons and four consecutive playoff appearances.
But the knock on Lewis for years has been his failure to win a playoff game. In six playoff appearances, the Bengals have lost each one in the Wild Card round.
Lewis has led the Bengals to three AFC North division titles and was named the NFL Coach of the Year in 2009.
