Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports that the Bengals expect Marvin Lewis back in Cincinnati for 2011. He tweeted:
Bengals expect HC Marvin Lewis now will remain in Cincinnati. The two sides expect to resolve any issues within next 24 hours.
However, Hobson partially disputes this on his latest blog entry at Bengals.com:
Despite reports the Bengals expect head coach Marvin Lewis to return, there was no agreement after a Tuesday morning meeting and the sides were expected to meet again before noon to re-convene discussions.
It’s believed that there are a variety of issues at play in the negotiations centering around the staffing and scouting and how the March 4 end of the collective bargainning agreement impacts them.
Could this mean Lewis has successfully petitioned Brown for more changes to the organization? Joe Reedy named an indoor practice facility, personnel department changes, and a unified philosophy as things Lewis was looking for from Brown to stay.
We’ll continue to monitor the situation throughout the day.
