The Bengals fired Lewis following a 6-10 season in 2018.

Lewis was represented by current Arizona State athletic director Ray Anderson, a former agent. His daughter, Whitney, went to school there.

The 60-year-old Lewis previously was the defensive coordinator for the Ravens from 1996 to 2001 and helped lead them to a Super Bowl victory in 2000. He also worked as an assistant coach with the Washington Redskins and Pittsburgh Steelers.
