As one AFC North team has already fired their coach in Cleveland, a losing season has not cost Marvin Lewis his job with the Bengals.
Reports say that Lewis and owner Mike Brown have come to terms for the coach to come back to the organization for his 9th season in 2011.
Lewis, whose team lost to the Steelers twice this year, led the Bengals to the AFC North title a season ago, but they dropped their first playoff game to the Jets at home.
In the 8 seasons with the team, the coach has had them 8-8 three times, under .500 three times, and twice has he led them to division titles, with them losing to the Steelers and Jets both times in their first playoff game.
So at the end of the day, Brown thought it was easier to stick with Lewis than go out and try to convince another coach to come in.
