The Cincinnati Bengals haven't won a playoff game in 24 years, but if Marvin Lewis cand lead the Bengals to a Super Bowl victory in February, he plans to walk off into the sunset.
"I want to hand [owner] Mike [Brown] the trophy," Lewis said via the Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Daugherty, "then just walk away."
The 13th-year head coach did sign an extension in April, he wasn't kidding about walking away, according to Daugherty.
"Marvin Lewis raised the Titanic," NFL Media analyst and former Bengals safety Solomon Wilcots said. "This team was at the bottom of the ocean when he came in. They are (now) a perennial playoff team."
Lewis has taken more control over personnel matters in recent years, with Brown gradually fading into the background.
"I know what's important to him, he knows what's important to me," Lewis explained. "Not (about) players, not necessarily football. The evolution of the building, the transition we've made."Back to the Cincinnati Bengals Newsfeed
