Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis denied a report he is planning on leaving the organization after the 2017 season to "pursue opportunities elsewhere."

Lewis made the comments after the Bengals' 34-7 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, saying he's made no decisions on his future. Adam Schefter of ESPN first reported Lewis was intending to step down.

Per that report, "With a flurry of head coaching openings expected in the coming weeks and a shortage of obvious head coaching candidates with experience, Lewis is likely to be on teams' short lists of candidates."

He also reportedly would be interested in taking on an advisory role for one of his former assistant coaches, such as Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer.
