Marvin Lewis is out after 16 seasons as the Cincinnati Bengals head coach.
The organization and coach have “mutally decided to part ways,” according to a press release from the team.
The Bengals wrapped up a third straight losing season with a 16-13 loss to the Steelers on Sunday. The Bengals finished 2-9 after a 4-1 start to the season.
Lewis signed a two-year extension after a disappointing 2017 season when many thought he would not return.
Lewis led the Bengals to seven playoff appearances during his tenure, including five straight trips from 2011-15, but Cincinnati went 0-7 in the postseason.

Lewis, 60, was 131-122-3 with the Bengals.
The team will begin the search for a new coach immediately and expects the process to last several weeks.
