Lewis played for Wisconsin from 2004-07 before moving into the coaching ranks. After three years as an offensive coordinator in high school, he served as the tight ends coach at Nebraska-Omaha in 2010. Following a grad assistant stint at Akron in 2011, Lewis coached at Eastern Illinois and Bowling Green for two years before moving on to Syracuse in 2016.
He spent two years on staff with the Orange, and now is heading back to the MAC.
