Bengals Head Coach And McDonald, Pa. Native Marvin Lewis Fired

Bengals Head Coach And McDonald, Pa. Native Marvin Lewis Fired

Adam Gase was sacked by Miami after three seasons with a record of 23 wins and 25 losses. Whether or not he gets the job could come down to just how strong Lewis' opinion still matters to the organization, and how willing decision-makers are to think that Jackson has simply been a victim of circumstance. How does one get to coach that long? There was a succession plan for Hue Jackson to take over as Bengals head coach before he left to coach the Browns, and since he returned midseason after his firing in Cleveland, many have hypothesized that it's inevitable Jackson will take over.

Wilks served as a defensive assistant before joining the Cardinals, but his team ranked last in a variety of offensive categories with rookie Josh Rosen at the helm: points per game (14.1), total yardage per game (241.6), passing yardage per game (157.7) and rushing yardage per game (83.9).

After 16 years of Marvin Lewis has been fired as head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Cardinals capped their 3-13 season with a loss to the Seahawks that leaves them with the first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, though Wilks won't be around to voice his opinion on the matter. He also posted a disappointing 0-7 postseason record.

Though Lewis never won a playoff game as the head coach of the Bengals, he did finish with a career winning percentage of 51.8 and once built a perennial playoff team that was never out of the conversation.

"I regret I haven't been able to provide them with the No 1 goal of being world champions". Well, Cincinnati was a woeful franchise who had missed the playoffs 12 years in a row when Lewis arrived. Gase was 23-25 in three seasons in South Florida.

Rumors of Lewis being fired by the team have been looming for years.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross promoted Chris Grier from general manager to head of football operations.
