Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis has hired his son as an assistant coach.
Marcus Lewis is Cincinnati’s new defensive quality control assistant, the Bengals announced today. The 24-year-old Marcus was a college linebacker at Indiana State.
There may not be another profession in America in which fathers hire their sons more frequently than NFL coaches. Andy Reid’s son Britt is an assistant in Kansas City, Bill Belichick’s son Steve is an assistant in New England, Mike Zimmer’s son Adam is an assistant in Minnesota, Jeff Fisher’s son Brandon is an assistant in St. Louis, Pete Carroll’s son Nate is an assistant in Seattle and Lovie Smith’s son Mikal is an assistant in Tampa Bay.
Now we add the Lewis family to the list of coaching combinations.
