Marvin Lewis joining Herm Edwards’ staff at Arizona State

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.

  1. That is a great get for ASU. Lewis is still a very respected coach. Mixed results as a HC but was a fantastic defensive coordinator and will be a veritable heavyweight helping out at the college level.

  2. Herm Edwards has done great things at ASU and this hire is another step in making the program a top notch recruiting destination. Good for Edwards, Lewis and especially good for ASU in producing more NFL ready products like N’keal Harry!

    Edwards have a loser death wish with this hire, or homeboys network hire?
    Sounds to me like he got a guy with 16 years of NFL had coaching experience as a glorified NCAA ball boy. I wouldn’t why Marvin Lewis as my head coach, but having a brain like that in the room never hurt anyone.

  4. After 16 years with the same team things seem to grow stale for Marvin Lewis. A change like this may be just what he needs to re-invigorate himself.

  5. Bengals owner mike brown is the problem.

    NOT Marvin Lewis.

    SEE: Abandoning All-Pro T Andrew Whitworth and
    never giving Andy Dalton quality tight end depth

  6. hey rustbelt – Bengals owner is the problem but Marvin is not NFL head coach material…he may do well in the college ranks!
