CINCINNATI (AP) - Former Broncos head coach Vance Joseph will interview for Cincinnati's job this week as the Bengals begin their search for Marvin Lewis' replacement.
Joseph will be in Cincinnati on Thursday and Friday to talk to owner Mike Brown and members of the front office. The Bengals' familiarity with Joseph works in his favor. Joseph was the defensive backs coach under Lewis in 2014-15.
Hue Jackson also is among those under consideration for the job and got Lewis' endorsement as his successor.
The Bengals are conducting their first head coaching search since the end of the 2002 season, when Dick LeBeau was fired. Lewis got the job, the first outsider brought in by Brown. He elevated the franchise from forlorn to playoff contender, but he couldn't win a postseason game in 16 seasons.
