The Cincinnati Bengals are expected to have a job opening soon. Head Coach Marvin Lewis is expected to leave the organization.

Lewis has been on the hot seat for quite some time. Yet, he continued to keep his job for the past 15-years.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Lewis will pursue other opportunities. He would like to find another head coaching job, according to Schefter, or join his former assistant staffs.

Lewis took over the Bengals job in 2003. He arrived when the team was horrible, then guided the team to seven playoff appearances in the past 15-years.

The Bengals could not advance past the Wild Card round each time they made the playoffs. He has a 123-111-3 record with the Bengals.

The 59-year-old was one of the top defensive coordinators in the league before accepting the Bengals head coaching job. This will be the second straight year that Cincinnati did not make the playoffs.

If he does not accept another head coaching job, Lewis could possibly join the Minnesota Vikings, as their assistant head coach or defensive coordinator. George Edwards is the Vikings defensive coordinator, who is expected to interview for head coaching jobs, and would have to leave for Lewis to get the defensive coordinator job.

Zimmer worked for Lewis in Cincinnati before he became the Vikings head coach.
