#3 – Marvin Lewis
Former longtime Cincinnati Bengals head coach, Marvin Lewis, actually interviewed for the head coaching job in Dallas prior to the team hiring Mike McCarthy earlier this year. So we know there’s already some interest that exists between the organization and Lewis.
Prior to being the Bengals’ head coach for 16 years, Lewis with the defensive coordinator of the legendary Baltimore Ravens of the late 1990s. He helped to lead the Ravens in destroying the New York Giants, 34-7, in Super Bowl XXXV following the 2000 season.
The 62-year old Lewis is currently at Arizona State, coaching the Sun Devils as co-defensive coordinator alongside another Super Bowl-winner, former Giants’ linebacker Antonio Pierce. Both are on the Sun Devils’ staff under former NFL head coach, Herm Edwards.
Marvin Lewis was the coordinator of one of the greatest defenses in NFL history. With the Cowboys already showing interest in potentially hiring him as their head coach, adding Lewis to help the defense in Dallas seems like a logical connection.
