After 15 years, Marvin Lewis is done in Cincinnati.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the Bengals long-time head coach and the team plan to mutually part ways after the 2017 season, per sources informed of the situation.

Lewis came to the Bengals as the ninth coach in franchise history after serving as defensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins (2002) and Baltimore Ravens (1996-2001). Lewis brought the Bengals back to relevance after over a decade of losing seasons, and going 123-111-3 in Cincinnati and leading the team to four AFC North division titles in his time there.

According to the report, Lewis is "likely to be on teams' short lists of candidates" ahead of a number of head-coaching openings, one of which has already become apparent after the firing of Giants coach Ben McAdoo.

The Pennsylvania native had previously talked about how he realized jobs like this don't last forever. Lewis is hoping to potentially move into a front-office job. "I think we all accept that".

Lewis is the NFL's second-longest tenured head coach.

The 59-year-old Lewis, with 15 years in Cincinnati, is the longest tenured head coach in Bengals history. Sources close to Lewis told the Enquirer he remains interested in coaching in 2018 and does not plan to retire.

The Bengals now sit with a record of 5-8, and have been all but eliminated from playoff contention, and are 12.5-point underdogs this week against the Minnesota Vikings. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. E.T.
