Marvin Lewis says he'll be back coaching Bengals in 2017; no word from ownership
Marvin Lewis tells @RossTuckerNFL & me on @SiriusXMNFL that he is planning to return to @Bengals in 2017.
But a report from Ed Werder of ESPN this week indicated Lewis would be back.
Lewis' comments obviously confirm that report, with the caveat that Lewis doesn't technically have full control over his future
Bengals owner Mike Brown could make a decision on Lewis that would change the way he approaches his job. It doesn't seem likely Lewis would make the comments he's making, however, without having talked with his boss.
Hahahaha! Like Mike Brown would fire Marvin Lewis. Mike Brown and Marvin Lewis speak daily. Marvin, an honorary Brown, would not have said that if he didn't have Mike's blessing. Now all that's left is to wait and see if we get our annual contract extension.
What Marvin was really trying to say was, "I got you babe".
