According to Marvin Lewis, he’ll be back with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2017. He has one-year left on his contract.

Earlier this week, former Washington Redskins tight end Chris Cooley said on the Cooley and Kevin Show that Lewis was going to retire. We don’t know what his source was.

Lewis said in an Sirius XM NFL Radio interview, “I’ll be back in 2017.” That basically shut down any rumors about him being fired or retiring.

Earlier this month, Lewis also stated to the Cincinnati Enquirer that he planned to returned if he was asked.

“I just didn’t want to make a headline,” Lewis said. “I don’t need to make headlines. I don’t want to see my name in a headline. Someone had already very unresponsibly made a headline, and I wasn’t going to give any credibility to that.”

The Bengals are 5-9-1 and will finish the season on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. This is their first non-winning season with Cincinnati since 2010.

Lewis — who has been the Bengals head coach since 2003 — is winless in the playoffs (0-7). However, he’s 117-110-3 in his 14 years with the team.

Only New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has a longer tenure as an NFL head coach. He was hired by that franchise in 2001.
