CINCINNATI (AP) — Former Broncos head coach Vance Joseph will interview for Cincinnati’s job this week as the Bengals begin their search for Marvin Lewis’ replacement.Joseph will be in Cincinnati on Thursday and Friday to talk to owner Mike Brown and members of the front office. The Bengals’ familiarity with Joseph works in his favor. Joseph was the defensive backs coach under Lewis in 2014-15.Hue Jackson also is among those under consideration for the job and got Lewis’ endorsement as his successor.The Bengals are conducting their first head coaching search since the end of the 2002 season http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-jessie-bates-iii-jersey , when Dick LeBeau was fired. Lewis got the job, the first outsider brought in by Brown. He elevated the franchise from forlorn to playoff contender, but he couldn’t win a postseason game in 16 seasons.A third straight losing season and a third straight year of falling attendance prompted Brown to finally part ways with Lewis, who is 0-7 in the playoffs. The overriding question is whether Brown, who is averse to major change, will choose someone familiar or go outside the organization for his next head coach.The Bengals plan to interview a wide range of candidates over several weeks before choosing one.Joseph was fired by Denver on Monday after a 6-10 finish and an 11-21 mark in his two seasons, the worst two-year stretch for the Broncos since the 1960s. Brown has shown a willingness to overlook won-lost records — he kept giving Lewis extensions — if he feels a philosophical connection to a coach.Jackson is the other candidate with head coaching experience and close ties to the Brown family. He spent eight years on Lewis’ staff in a variety of roles Giovani Bernard Jersey White , including receivers coach, defensive backs coach, running backs coach, offensive coordinator and special assistant on defense.The Bengals quickly rehired Jackson when the Browns fired him in October after only three wins in two-plus years. He became Lewis’ special assistant on defense, a loosely defined role that included preparing the game plan each week and talking to players on the sideline during games.Lewis endorsed Jackson to be his successor during his farewell news conference on Monday.“I think he’s more than qualified,” Lewis said.Cleveland had a resurgence after Jackson was fired in October, winning five of their last seven games. Hiring Jackson would send a message to fans that the organization isn’t going to change very much.The Bengals also reportedly are interested in Kansas City offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy Womens Mark Walton Jersey , who has ties with Cincinnati. Bieniemy was a Bengals running back and kick returner from 1995-98. Several teams are interested in Bieniemy, with the Jets confirming on Twitter that they’d interviewed him Wednesday. CINCINNATI (AP) — A lackluster showing in Cleveland consigned the Bengals to last place for only the second time in coach Marvin Lewis’ 16 seasons and added another twist to Cincinnati’s futile and fan-alienating season.A 26-18 loss locked Cincinnati (6-9) into last place in the AFC North for the first time since 2010 and raised more questions about whether Lewis will get a 17th chance with the franchise that’s lost games and fans at an alarming rate.“I don’t know,” end Carlos Dunlap said, when asked about Lewis’ fate. “A lot of things happen. Everybody is making business decisions.”Not so much in Cincinnati.Owner Mike Brown has ignored fans’ demands for change while keeping head coaches around. During the 1990s, he extended Dave Shula’s contract while he was in the midst of losing 50 games faster than any coach in NFL history. He’s repeatedly rewarded Lewis with more chances even though he has yet to win a playoff game.The loss in Cleveland stripped away one of the justifications Brown used last year for keeping Lewis around. The Bengals got blown out by the Bears and Vikings in consecutive weeks, but rallied to beat the Lions and the Ravens in the last two games.Brown cited the team’s effort in the final two weeks as one of the reasons he gave Lewis an extension following a 7-9 finish, overlooking the franchise’s drop to second to last in the league in home attendance Womens Alex Redmond Jersey , ahead of only the Chargers in their small, temporary home in Carson, California.Even fewer fans showed up this season.The depleted Bengals were listless for most of their game Sunday in Cleveland (7-7-1) against a team that’s also been eliminated from playoff contention. The Browns played harder and better while sweeping their season series with the Bengals for the first time since 2002, when coach Dick LeBeau was fired and Lewis was hired.Cincinnati wraps up a third straight losing season on Sunday in Pittsburgh, which will have a playoff spot on the line. The Steelers (8-6-1) need a win and a loss by the Ravens (9-6), who host the Browns.For Cincinnati, the trip to Heinz Field will be a full-circle moment. The Bengals opened the season 4-1 and could have taken control of the division http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-andy-dalton-jersey , but the Steelers pulled one out at Paul Brown Stadium on Oct. 14 with a play that became the signature moment of the Bengals’ implosion.Ben Roethlisberger saw the Bengals in an all-out blitz and threw a short pass that Antonio Brown turned into a 31-yard touchdown with 10 seconds left. The Steelers’ 28-21 victory ruptured Cincinnati’s sense that this season would finally be different.The Steelers have won seven straight and 10 of 11 against their Ohio River rival. The Bengals are a staggering 8-25 against the Steelers under Lewis, including 2-16 at Paul Brown Stadium.If Brown wants to retain Lewis despite the three straight losing seasons and his 0-7 career mark in the playoffs, he can point to the injuries to star players during the Bengals’ 2-8 fade.Quarterback Andy Dalton and receiver A.J. Green had season-ending injuries. No. 2 receiver Tyler Boyd also is sidelined with a knee injury, leaving backup quarterback Jeff Driskel with few options. He completed only 2 of 6 passes in the first half for 3 yards as Cleveland took control.The defense wasn’t much better. Baker Mayfield completed 27 of 37 passes for 284 yards and three touchdowns without getting hit. The only time the Bengals made contact was when Mayfield ran for a first down and Dunlap hit him at the sideline, prompting a skirmish.How much any of that figures into Browns’ calculations won’t be known for another week. Players know that something has to change.“You can make arguments either way,” Dunlap said. “I just want to get back to it, get back to where we started off here http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-tyler-kroft-jersey , the habits we created. I want that feeling back. Today is not the feeling.”NEW TIMEThe game in Pittsburgh was originally scheduled for a 1 p.m. kickoff, but the NFL moved it to a 4:25 p.m. start, putting it head to head in the same time slot with the Browns-Ravens game.
