The Cincinnati Bengals have signed head coach, Marvin Lewis to a one year contract extension according to ESPN.

ESPN tweeted through their SportsCenter account earlier: "Bengals extend contract of head coach Marvin Lewis through 2015 season. Lewis' former contract was set to expire after 2014."

Lewis has been the coach of the Bengals since the 2003 season and has led the team to the playoffs for the past three seasons.

Although the Bengals have never won a playoff game under Lewis, they are considered to have among the most talented rosters in the NFL at present.

Lewis was able to guide the Bengals to a 11-5 season in 2013, beating the reigning Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens in the final regular season game.

The coach will now be under contract to the Ohio based franchise for a further two seasons and will presumably be tasked with bringing a playoff win or two to the franchise.

The Bengals lost both their offensive and defensive co-ordinators this postseason as Jay Gruden joined the Washington Redskins and Mike Zimmer became the Minnesota Vikings head coach.
