Marvin Lewis Derogatory Statement Against The Bengals Awaits His Return On The Opposite Side.

The NFL sounds like it will be welcoming Marvin Lewis back to its coaching ranks officially.

The Las Vegas Raiders officially made interim head coach Antonio Pierce their head coach, and he plans on bringing the former Cincinnati Bengals head coach onto his staff.

This, according to NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero.We have yet to know where Lewis will be on the staff. Whether it is as an assistant or a more formal advisor. Lewis obviously has plenty of experience as a defensive coach, and his speciality was the linebacker position.

Lewis was the Bengals head coach from 2003 till the end of the 2018 season. Regardless of how his tenure ended, he was responsible for changing the entire culture of the Bengals. He updated many outdated procedures, which brought the team up to a modern standard.

Following his departure from Cincinnati, Lewis joined the Arizona State coaching staff, led by Herm Edwards. Lewis was eventually promoted to co-defensive coordinator.

The Bengals are set to host the Raiders in Cincinnati for the 2024 season. That would be the first time Lewis will return to what he always knew as Paul Brown Stadium on the opposing sideline. He should receive quite the warm welcome.

The Bengals’ defense this past season was abysmal, especially zooming in on the explosive play prevalence throughout the campaign.

According to Tru Media, the team ranked dead last in explosive play rate allowed and was bottom three in stuff rate as one of the biggest boom or bust units in the league (t-12th most takeaways).

Outside of Trey Hendrickson and DJ Reader, most of the defense played pretty poorly throughout the season as Cincinnati looks for the youth movement to take a big leap in 2024.
