The Bengals will not have an official announcement on head coach Marvin Lewis' future with the club on Monday, team spokesman Jack Brennan said Monday afternoon.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that head coach Marvin Lewis, whose contract is up, met with president Mike Brown Monday and that the two were expected to have additional meetings. PFW has learned Lewis and Brown will indeed meet Tuesday. 

On Sunday, on the topic of meeting with Brown, Lewis said, according to the club's Web site, "I meet with Mike every day." 

Lewis, 51, has coached the Bengals for the past eight seasons, leading the Bengals to a 60-69-1 record, which includes a pair of playoff losses.

After the Bengals' season-ending 13-7 loss at Baltimore Sunday, Lewis, whose contract is up, spoke at length about his future.  

"I don't know when anything will be decided, just because there's a lot that goes into this, with me, with everybody," Lewis said, according to the club's Web site. "I think I said the other day, for myself where I am right now, my coaching career, and we're at a different point than we were eight years ago. And I think that's big. And I think this football team is a lot different than it was eight years ago. And that's good.

"As I said, the guys in that room should know that, the leaders. And we're in a good spot. It doesn't have to go back, it'll be tough times to fight through. But they don't have to go backwards anymore."

Asked Sunday about what would have to happen for him to return as the Bengals' head coach, Lewis said: "We sit down and we talk, and we all agree. It's got nothing to do with money. Everybody speculates on this or that. I like where things are. As my boss says, 'I'm probably saying too much.'"
