The Cincinnati Bengals on Monday announced a two-year extension for head coach Marvin Lewis.
Lewis is coming off back-to-back losing seasons and has no playoff wins in 15 seasons with Cincinnati.
Here’s a sampling of reaction to the news on Twitter:
Marvin Lewis is returning to coach the Bengals. You know what they say:— Luke Null (@Luke_Null) January 2, 2018
The 16th year is the charm!
Just seeing the Marvin Lewis news.— Tyler Steege (@TSteegeNFL) January 3, 2018
Never seen a situation quite like that. I get the #Bengals were a disaster before he showed up, but....
15 seasons, no playoff wins, 52% winning record.
He shouldn’t be employed.
I'm sure Marvin Lewis is a great guy. But its time for the Bengals to move on— clutchness (@the_chad11) January 3, 2018
I know a lot of ppl focus on #MarvinLewis 0-7 playoff record, but let’s be real. Carson’s knee was blown out in ‘05, Coles was their best WR in ‘09, ‘11 & ‘12 HOU was the better team, everybody was hurt in ‘14. In ‘15 they had it and lost their poise & ‘13 they should’ve won.— Drew Koch (@DrewKoch714) January 3, 2018
Marvin Lewis getting a contract extension is pathetic. Management just proved they’re cool with failure.— Geoff Gates (@GeoffGates) January 3, 2018
S/O to Marvin Lewis, coach of the Bengals!!!! I need that type of job security! 🤷🏾♀️— Chanele N Cunningham (@MakeupByCoco) January 3, 2018
Marvin Lewis is coming back. Bring back Peko, Maualuga, and Whitworth while you're at it— Jeffrey (@KloekerJT) January 3, 2018
It’s not Marvin Lewis that is the problem, it’s Mike Brown— Mason Blankenship (@Mase21113) January 3, 2018
Though Marvin Lewis has a record of .527 as head coach of the @Bengals, he missed the playoffs the last two seasons and when he did make it, he never won a single playoff victory. They should have let him go.— Brent Stern-Bogan (@TheBoodha) January 3, 2018
I root for Marvin Lewis let’s win the division next year— Dustin Ellis (@DEllis_11) January 3, 2018
Marvin Lewis is a great coach. Love the signing. It will keep the Steelers on top of 5 he AFC North for at least two more years!— James Furry (@james_furry) January 2, 2018

Hey, everyone complaining about Marvin Lewis keeping his job....remember the Browns are keeping their head coach who makes Lewis look like Don Shula in comparison.— Jerome Goolsby (@JLG1956) January 2, 2018
I love Marvin Lewis, but staying with the Bengals is a bad fit for both sides.— J Allan (@JAllan55) January 2, 2018
Whether you agree or disagree with Marvin Lewis being back with the #Bengals do true fans want the days of Bruce Coslet, David Shula, Dick LeBeau?? Get a OL & guys healthy & see what happens. #JustSaying 🤔🏈— Just A Sports Guy (@5thFloorCards) January 2, 2018
