Jets interview ASU co-DC Marvin Lewis for head coaching job
The New York Jets are the latest team to meet with Arizona State co-defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis over their head coaching vacancy.
The team announced Thursday it completed an interview with the co-DC, a day after the Jets met with Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy.
Lewis has now met with the Houston Texans, Detroit Lions and Jets.
Lewis originally joined the Sun Devils staff in 2019 as a special assistant. He served as ASU’s interim defensive backs coach for the 2019 Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl before taking over coordinator duties with Antonio Pierce this season.
Before taking his talents to the desert, Lewis spent 2003-18 as the Cincinnati Bengals head coach.
During his 16 seasons with the Bengals, Lewis set the team’s franchise record for career wins (131), playoff appearances (seven), consecutive playoff appearances (five) and division titles (four). He’s the longest-tenured coach in Bengals history.
Lewis also served as the Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator from 1996-2001 and was a part of the team’s Super Bowl XXXV run.
