Being a G.M. something Marvin Lewis “would listen to”

There’s been plenty of speculation this season about Bengals coach Marvin Lewis moving on from the job he’s held for the last 15 years and Sunday morning brought a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN that Lewis is indeed planning on leaving the organization at the end of the season.

Could a move to the front office be next up for Lewis? It’s something that’s been talked about for several years given his heavy involvement in personnel decisions in Cincinnati over the years and it appears to be something that Lewis is open to doing in 2018 and beyond.

Lewis told Ian Rapoport of NFL Media that becoming a General Manager is “something I would listen to.” It does not seem a front office role is in the cards with the Bengals and the only current opening is with the Giants, although there will be more movement around the league once the regular season comes to an end.

There will also be coaching changes around the league and Lewis could wind up as a candidate for one or more of those jobs while the Bengals move on to their first new coach in a long time.

  1. For a while the Bengals drafted ok and developed players , but that hasn’t happened as much recently.
    Maybe it could work out, and he’s probably better than some of the below average GMs out there like the Jets Mike Maccagnan.

  2. This makes total sense…. 15 years as the HC, not one playoff win… But he could be a good GM. Unbelievable

  3. This might not be that crazy. It’s because the Bengals have always chosen to have their coaching staffs serve as scouts. Unless they’ve changed recently it has always been this was since their founding in1968.

    Having said that, Marvin may be a good talent evaluator but he accepts too many bad characters.

  4. People are making a mockery out of the General manager process. I guess anyone that has anything to do with football can be one of the most important roles in an organization. Just hire the equipment manager for GM. Marv has no personnel experience. No scouting experience. No salary Cap experience and hasn’t even been a good coach. But you’s “consider” a GM role? Get out of here!!

    What has this guy accomplished as a head coach that wound promote him to being a GM?

    More than a guy like Lynch, who was previously an on air talent.
