Lewis will be entering his 13th season as head of the Bengals in 2015. He has a 100–96–2 career record, including an 0–6 mark in the postseason. Cincinnati went 10–5–1 last season, reaching double digit wins in the regular season for the third straight year.
"I appreciate the commitment by management to the direction of our team," Lewis said in a statement. "It's gratifying to our coaching staff and to me personally. The stakes get higher each and every year, and the return of our players this week for the start of offseason work has stoked our fires. I'm excited to continue our pursuit of greatness and to be world champions."
The Bengals have earned a playoff berth in five of the last six seasons, but the team lost in the AFC wild-card game each time. In 2014, the 56-year-old Lewis became the 37th coach in NFL history to win 100 regular season games.
