TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Former Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis is joining Arizona State coach Herm Edwards' staff as a special adviser.

The school announced the hiring on Tuesday. Lewis spent 16 seasons coaching the Bengals and is the franchise's all-time wins leader with 131. He led Cincinnati to seven playoff appearances, including five straight from 2011-15, and four division titles.

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 Baltimore Ravens from 1996-2001 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.
