Cincinnati Bengals Fire Head Coach Marvin Lewis After 16 Seasons

Rooney Rule and Minority Hires Will Be Under Intense Scrutiny if Majority of African American Coaches are Fired

They made the playoffs in 2016, his first year, but lost 30-12 at Pittsburgh.

The Cincinnati Bengals announced Monday that head coach Marvin Lewis would be leaving the team after 16 seasons.

"I regret I haven't been able to provide them with the No 1 goal of being world champions".

Lewis helped end a 15-year playoff drought in 2005 and ushered in the club's greatest period of regular-season success, winning four division titles and reaching the playoffs in five consecutive seasons for the first time in club history.

Basically, if Jackson ever gets a head coaching job again, you'd think it would have to come after a few years of strong work as some sort of high-ranking assistant.'Or it could come next season, if a certain outgoing Cincinnati Bengals coach has his way. Gase was 23-25 in three seasons in South Florida.

Denver fired Vance Joseph after a 6-10 season.

UK and France ‘action plan’ to deal with migrants crossing Channel
Home Secretary Sajid Javid has called the crossings a "major incident" and reached out to French officials for more coordination. He said it was vital the United Kingdom struck "a balance between protecting them (migrants) and protecting our borders".

Team chairman Stephen Ross said it was time for the franchise to ditch a philosophy that was not working.

"Ultimately it was not good enough. We didn't get it done", he said. Though Cincinnati finished a disappointing 6-10 this year, the second-longest-tenured coach in the National Football League did appear to have a job for life.

Denver has posted 5-11 and 6-10 records, respectively, in the last two seasons with Joseph at the helm.

After Dirk Koetter of the Bucs and Todd Bowles of the Jets were fired Sunday night, the duo now has company.

Per Cincinnati.com, Jackson is expected to interview for the Bengals head coach position. 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.
