The Cincinnati Bengals have added a year to the contract of head coach Marvin Lewis. The team announced Friday that the new deal will secure Lewis through the 2015 NFL season.
Lewis's previous contract was due to expire after the 2014 season. Last month, Lewis said he wasn't too concerned about working out an extension past his 11th season with the Bengals. Cincinnati finished 11-5 in 2013 and won the AFC North Division championship by two games over Pittsburgh and Baltimore. It was the Bengals' third straight playoff appearance and fourth in five seasons. He also owns the team record with 90 career wins.
“I’m blessed to continue to do a job I love here in Cincinnati, and with the Bengals organization,” Lewis said in a team press release. “I truly appreciate the commitment by our management to continue to enable us to build an NFL championship team.”
