CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Bengals and Marvin Lewis agreed to a one-year contract extension Wednesday through 2016.

He is the second longest tenured head coach in the NFL behind New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. 

"I'm excited to continue our pursuit of greatness and to be World Champions," Lewis said.

Lewis will be looking to make his fifth straight playoff appearance this season.  He has led the Bengals to four straight playoff appearances from 2011-2014, a first in franchise history. However, the Bengals are 0-6 in the playoffs under Lewis.

Cincinnati has reached double digits in wins each of the last three seasons for the first time in club history. 

Lewis' all time record with the Bengals is 100-89-2.
