Lewis, who has been at the helm since the 2003 season, has helped the Bengal to 3 straight playoff appearances. He is 0-5 in the playoffs though as head coach, which has been cause for many critics throughout his tenure.
Lewis still remains the second longest tenured coach behind Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots. He led the Bengals to an 11-5 record in 2013, the first time since 2005, and their three AFC North titles.
The signing of this extension is a vote of confidence by the Bengals organization that Lewis will be their guy for the next few years. It also is a sign of recognition for the stability of the organization over the past few years and into the near future.
