Lewis improved the Bengals to winning seasons with a band of young players such as quarterback Carson Palmer and receivers Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh.

He was voted AP Coach of the Year in 2009. His regular season record, 131-122-3, holding just above .500. But it was his postseason record, a sad 0-7, that was always black mark on his coaching record.
