CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Bengals Head Coach Marvin Lewis and the team have agreed to a one-year contract extension, NFL.com is reporting.

The extension will replace Lewis' existing deal and will have him with the Bengals through the 2017 season, Michael Silver is reports. 

The Bengals have not officially announced the deal.

Lewis is currently the NFL's second-longest tenured head coach behind New England's Bill Belichick.

"He is the core of our team we built this thing together with developing young guys (including myself) and have done better every regular season," Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap said. "Not many other teams have done what we have been able to do last 5-6 seasons. Not to mention the impact his foundation has on the city. 

He took over as Bengals head coach in 2003.
