There are currently three head coach openings in the NFL and more will open up as the season dwindles down.
Former Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis is reportedly a name to watch.
According to NFL Network’s Daniel Jeramiah, Lewis’s name is being brought up ‘over and over again’ in searches around the league.
ESPN’s Chris Mortenson quote retweeted Jeramiah’s tweet, saying “ditto.” Mortenson also confirmed that Lewis will get head coach interviews.
Lewis has been out of the NFL since 2018, when he mutually parted ways with the Bengals after 16 years with the team.
Last offseason, he interviewed for the Cowboys head coaching vacancy before they went with Mike McCarthy. He was also reportedly a “strong contender” for the Washington job before they hired Ron Rivera.
Lewis turned around a declining Bengals franchise and made them respectable and relevant during his long tenure. He had a 131-122-3 record in the regular season but never won a playoff game, going 0-7.
The Falcons, Texans and Lions are the three teams currently with openings. The Jets, Jaguars, Chargers, Bears, and Eagles are other teams with coaches reportedly on the hot seat.
