It could be a case of Marvin Lewis telling the Bengals, “I am breaking up with you,” before the Bengals are able to break up with him. Regardless, the word is out that Lewis plans to move on.

Via Paul Dehner of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Bengals were caught off guard by the news. And the organization surely isn’t thrilled that the word got out the morning before one of the team’s last three games of the season — especially with Lewis going on the record to say that he’s interested in becoming a personnel executive.
