Cincinnati Bengals head coach

 

 

 

Marvin Lewis took over as the head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals in 2003, after the team went 2-14 the season before. He came in and led the team to an 8-8 season in his first year. His first trip to the playoffs came in season number three, and after four seasons, he had a record over .500. After a terrible 4-11-1 season in 2008, the Bengals bounced back in a big way, sweeping the AFC North, winning the division, and making the playoffs. Unfortunately, they were bounced in the first round. The dream season of 2009 turned to a nightmare in 2010, when they fell to 4-12. This was followed by the Carson Palmer trade debacle, calls for Lewis’s firing, and attendance to drop off completely. Last season, the Bengals came in with a bunch of young players and low expectations, and pulled off a 9-7 season, making the playoffs for the third time during Lewis’s tenure. However, for the third time, they were unable to make it out of the first round.
