Former head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals, Marvin Lewis, is making a return to the NFL. He has agreed to join the Las Vegas Raiders as an assistant head coach under Antonio Pierce’s leadership, as reported by Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.

Lewis initially entered coaching in 1981 at the college level and transitioned to the NFL in 1992, beginning as a linebackers coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers. His career included roles such as defensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens and assistant head coach/defensive coordinator for the Washington Commanders. In 2003, Lewis became the head coach of the Bengals, where he spent 16 seasons, achieving a 131-122-3 record and guiding the team to seven playoff appearances before parting ways in 2018.

After his tenure with the Bengals, Lewis took on a special advisor role at Arizona State in 2019, later transitioning to co-defensive coordinator in 2020. From 2021 to 2023, he resumed his role as a special advisor.

Antonio Pierce, now the head coach of the Raiders, worked with Lewis at Arizona State from 2019 to 2021. Pierce held various positions at the university, including associate head coach and defensive coordinator, before joining the Raiders as linebackers coach in 2022.
