Bengals' Marvin Lewis signs 1-year extension through 2017

CINCINNATI (AP) Bengals coach Marvin Lewis has signed a one-year contract extension through the 2017 season, the third straight year he's gotten extra time on his deal after losing in the playoffs.

The sides agreed to an extension last Friday. He also got one-year extensions after the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

Lewis has coached the Bengals for the last 13 seasons, a club record. He's 112-94-2 in the regular season and 0-7 in the playoffs, an NFL mark for postseason futility for a coach. The Bengals have lost their opening playoff game each of the last five seasons, also a record.

The Bengals lost their cool and blew a last-minute lead against the Steelers in the playoffs in January.
