Jan 4, (THAINDIAN NEWS) No one is still sure about the future of Marvin Lewis, as the head coach of Cincinnati Bengals. Especially when he has no dearth of opportunities, as his contract with the Bengals is on the verge of conclusion. The two teams who are seeking to grab this veteran coach are San Francisco 49ers and University of Pittsburgh.
Recently, the San Francisco 49ers sacked their coach, Mike Singletary. Their interim coach Jim Tomsula, is definitely not bagging the position of the head coach of the team. On the other hand, Marvin Lewis is an experienced person, who went 60-69-1 in his career. Therefore he is one of the potential candidates, who is likely to succeed Mike Singletary. Similarly, University of Pittsburgh has also dismissed its coach Michael Haywood, who was recently charged with domestic violence. Several sources are under the impression that since Marvin Lewis is from that area, he may be the probable substitute of Michael Haywood. Several sources from the Cincinnati Bengals are under the impression that their coach for nine years would now not return to the team, because of his apparent dissatisfaction with the owner and the overall management, especially the smaller scouting staff.
Marvin Lewis met the Cincinnati Bengal owner, Mike Brown on Monday and had a long discussion with him. DT Domata Peko told to a reputed source that after this meeting, their coach did not give any clue regarding his decisions. However, the player himself wants him to stay, as he personally loves playing for Marvin Lewis. Yet, the others say, that his retention in the team is unlikely, as he has already started considering himself a free agent.
