If Marvin Lewis is the Bengals head coach throughout 2010, he will become the longest tenured head coach in franchise history. I know what you're feeling -- that just doesn't seem right. Before the season, Lewis was one of three Bengals head coaches with a career winning record (42-38) and third winningest head coach in franchise history. After going 1-11-1 this year, his career record dropped to fifth all-time, behind Paul Brown and Sam Wyche, and isn't within the exclusive head coaches with a winning record as a Bengals head coach.
Lewis can still jump Wyche this season for fourth winningest coach, provided he closes the season with a perfect record. Still going for him is that he's one of four head coaches to take the Bengals to the playoffs. Next step? Becoming the third head coach to record a victory in the post-season. That might take a while.
