Lewis had breakfast and lunch with the Michigan State president.
But MSU officials have said no signing is imminent and they have other interviews scheduled this week.
''They're intrigued by him,'' a source close to the situation said.
An MSU source said Lewis interviewed well, something he hasn't always done for NFL jobs. They like his confidence and discipline, not to mention his defensive background. The Spartans allowed 398 points in 12 games and lacked discipline.
Their fear: he would bolt for an NFL head coaching job after only a few years.
Other possible candidates include Pitt coach Walt Harris, Boston College coach Tom O'Brien, and Oklahoma assistant Mike Stoops.
