CINCINNATI, July 31 (UPI) -- The Cincinnati Bengals Tuesday said they extended the contract of Coach Marvin Lewis through the 2014 season.

Lewis was entering the final year of a previous 2-year contract extension. Financial terms weren't released.

Lewis, 53, is entering his 10th season with Cincinnati. Only Philadelphia's Andy Reid and New England's Bill Belichick have been with their NFL teams longer.

The Bengals are 69-74-1 in the regular season under Lewis and twice won the AFC North. The team, however, is 0-3 in the playoffs with Lewis as coach. Cincinnati was 9-7 last season, losing to Houston in the first round of the playoffs.

"Coming off a playoff finish last year, with a solid coaching staff and good young players, continuity at the top gives us our best chance to do well," Bengals President Mike Brown said in a statement.

"We are excited about the team's prospects and happy to have completed this process with Marvin before the 2012 preseason schedule begins."
