The Cincinnati Bengals and head coach Marvin Lewis agreed to a one-year extension to remain as head coach on Friday. His previous deal, which was signed in 2010, was set to expire following the end of the 2014 season

"Marvin has earned this commitment for the job he is doing," Bengals president and owner Mike Brown said. "We are one of only five teams to qualify for the playoffs the last three years, and our prospects are bright looking ahead.

Lewis will enter his 13th year with the team and has won a total of 90 games, which is a club record. He has taken the Bengals to five playoff appearances, including the past three seasons, but has failed to get past the first round. Cincinnati lost to the San Diego Chargers 27-10 this past season. Prior to his arrival, the team had failed to reach the postseason in 12 consecutive seasons. 
Lewis and the Bengals haven't made much noise this free-agency period re-signing just three players and releasing two others. They have also lost three additional players to other teams during the free-agency period.
