Report: Marvin Lewis Expected To Meet With The San Francisco 49ers

New, comments

With Marvin Lewis meeting with the Bengals on Monday and the announcement of his future sitting in limbo, Lewis himself is far from complacent when it comes to open job opportunities.

According to Sports Illustrated's Jim Trotter, Marvin Lewis is expected to meet with the San Francisco 49ers. Trotter writes that Lewis isn't "viewed as a legit candidate" and that it was Lewis' people that contacted the 49ers and not the other way around.

However, as David Fucillo points out, Marvin Lewis could still join the 49ers if Brian Billick, who is viewed as a head coaching candidate, joins the team and hires Marvin Lewis as the Defensive Coordinator -- just like their Baltimore Ravens days.

While it might seem to Bengals fans that Lewis is finding every possible way to leave Cincinnati as quickly as possible, one could argue that Lewis is simply pressuring Mike Brown to make a decision on Lewis' demands while the former Bengals head coach increases interest among other teams by setting up interviews -- whether that team is interested or not.

Or Lewis really wants to leave and he's calling every available team begging someone for a job. It's not like his 60-69-1 record in eight seasons with the Bengals blows anyone's mind.
