Four more National Football League coaches are out, including Adam Gase and Marvin Lewis

NFL Head Coach Firings: Marvin Lewis In Cincinnati, Adam Gase In Miami, Vance Joseph In Denver, Steve Wilks In Arizona

NFL Head Coach Firings: Marvin Lewis In Cincinnati, Adam Gase In Miami, Vance Joseph In Denver, Steve Wilks In Arizona

But the team never won a playoff game under Lewis, and regressed the past three seasons, failing to qualify for the postseason.

The biggest shocker came in Cincinnati, where Marvin Lewis was sent packing after 16 seasons at the helm of the Bengals. "I regret I haven't been able to provide them with the No. 1 goal of being world champions".

Lewis helped end a 15-year playoff drought in 2005 and ushered in the club's greatest period of regular-season success, winning four division titles and reaching the playoffs in five consecutive seasons for the first time in club history. From a New England perspective, where the longest-tenured head coach doesn't appear to ready to retire, the openings present opportunties for teams to poach either offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels or de facto defensive coordinator Brian Flores from Bill Belichick's staff.

Miami dismissed Adam Gase after the Dolphins went 7-9.

Team chairman Stephen Ross said it was time for the franchise to ditch a philosophy that was not working. Bucs coach Dirk Koetter and Jets coach Todd Bowles already had been fired Sunday after their respective losses to close the regular season.

Miami didn't see enough progress, so it made a decision to dump Gase after his three seasons at the helm.




General manager John Elway did not mince his words in announcing the departure of Joseph.

Denver let Vance Joseph go after he went 11-21 in two seasons.

Arizona apparently has seen enough and opted to part ways with Wilks, who becomes the first one-and-done coach since the 49ers fired Chip Kelly in 2016.

Ask anyone within a 50-mile radius of Cleveland, or honestly just a television in the last three years, and they would probably express a decent amount of skepticism that Hue Jackson gets an National Football League head coaching job in the near future.

While there has been no indication about the next head coach in Cincinnati, the process is expected to take weeks.
