Herm Edwards is adding more experience to his Arizona State staff.

According to Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports, former Bengals coach Marvin Lewis is being hired as a special advisor.

Lewis has a home in Phoenix, and wasn’t busy after his gig as a commentator for the AAF ended prematurely (and apparently without other media opportunities).

Lewis was 131-122-3 in 16 years with the Bengals, and didn’t win a playoff game (0-for-7). But that .518 winning percentage was a lot better than the three coaches who preceded him there (Dick LeBeau, Bruce Coslet, and Dave Shula were a combined .295 there), which makes the job he did in Cincinnati pretty impressive.
