It was announced this morning that Marvin Lewis will be stepping down as the Bengals Head Coach at the end of the season, on his own accord.    Coach Lewis has been with the Bengals since 2003.  The second longest coaching tenure of current NFL coaches.  Only the Patriots Bill Belichick has been with his current team longer. Before then, he was defensive coordinator with the Redskins.

(Ignore the LeBron James part of the tweet.)

But during that time, he did bring the Bengals back from awfulness to being a playoff contender year in and year out.  Despite that, the Bengals currently haven’t won a postseason game since 1990.  That is currently the longest drought in the NFL.

It looks as though the Bengals are gearing up for a huge postseason overhaul of the coaching staff, as not many of their assistants will be leaving as well.

Hopefully, the Bengals are able to get a coach who can continue with the consistency that the Bengals have had during Lewis’s tenure, but also someone who can help the Bengals take the proverbial next step.
