According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Cincinnati Bengals have yet to make a decision on whether or not Marvin Lewis will return as head coach in 2011. Lewis met with owner Mike Brown on Monday, but Reedy said Bengals PR director Jack Brennan claims that a decision is expected either Tuesday or Wednesday.After numerous additions through free agency and the draft, the Bengals were expected to be a sleeper contender in the AFC. Instead, the defending AFC North champions ended up being one of the most surprising disappointments of 2010–which has put Lewis on the hot seat.
Lewis has recorded just two winning seasons during his eight years in Cincinnati and was named AP Coach of the Year in 2009. However, with the way things turned out for the Bengals this year after all of the high expectations during the offseason, it’s hard not to put the blame on Lewis.
Most of the fans in Cincinnati strongly believe it’s time for change and Lewis needs to go. Unfortunately, Bengals fans will have to wait at least another day or two before finding out Lewis’ fate.
