With Josh McDaniels becoming the latest head coach to be out of a job after the Denver Broncos fired him on Monday, FoxSports.com is conducting a poll for fans to see who they believe should be the next coach to be fired.
The candidates include Mike Singletary of the 49ers, John Fox of the Panthers, Jeff Fisher of the Titans, Gary Kubiak of the Texans, and Marvin Lewis of the Bengals. So of these five candidates, take one guess who leads all voters as the next coach to receive the ax?
That’s right—it’s Mr. Lewis.
As of Wednesday afternoon, over 21,000 fans had placed their votes—with 34% going to Lewis. At 2-10, the Bengals may end the season as one of the biggest disappointments of 2010. For a team that some predicted as a potential sleeper pick to make a run at the Super Bowl, Cincinnati is in the middle of a nine-game losing streak and hasn’t won a game since Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers.
Since Lewis is in the final year of his contract and has only recorded two winning seasons since taking over as head coach in 2003, it’s highly unlikely he’ll be back with the Bengals in 2010. Three head coaches (McDaniels, Wade Phillips, and Brad Childress) have already been fired this season and a few more are expected to receive the same treatment during the offseason—with Lewis most likely on that list.
