Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis heading back to college football?

By Dan Parzych

Now that the regular season has officially come to an end, all of the attention will be focused on the next couple of days to see if the Cincinnati Bengals will bring back head coach Marvin Lewis next season. If the Bengals do end up parting ways (which they should), there seems to be a few places Lewis can end up in 2011–including the University of Pittsburgh.Mike Florio of indicated on Sunday how Lewis is on the list of possible candidates for the new head coaching job at Pitt. The position opened up again after Mike Haywood–who was recently hired–was fired by Pittsburgh after he was arrested Friday on a domestic violence charge.

Considering he’s only recorded two winning seasons during his eight-years as head coach, Lewis doesn’t deserve to come back next season for the Bengals. He’ll most likely end up with a team in need of a defensive coordinator, but if Lewis wants to still be a head coach, it would be interesting to see if he would consider a gig in college football. Not to mention the fact that Lewis worked as an assistant for the school’s football team from 1990-92.
