Marvin Lewis chides reporters for doing their job

For better or worse (usually the latter), Marvin Lewis will never change.

Following Sunday’s loss to the Steelers, Lewis did what Lewis does and criticized reporters for doing their jobs. In this instance, that meant chiding reporters for asking him about his future, because, you know, that’s kind of a hot topic.

Lewis’ job status being asked about is something reporters should absolutely be doing right now, especially now that the season is over.

But it’s no secret that Lewis hates giving any kind of legitimate quote to local reporters other than what the weather is like (in regards to injuries) and “we’ll see.” He also deflects questions and gives non-answers as much as any coach in the NFL while lecturing media and fans on how they should stay the course, even when it’s clear he’s lost control.

Someday, this man won’t be coaching the Bengals. Someday.

But don’t expect that day to come in 2019.
