We study the generation and evolution of continuous-variable entanglement in a single-molecular-magnets (SMM) system, where the quantum coherence effect is induced by two classical electromagnetic fields (pump and control fields). Our numerical results show that the entanglement of cavity fields can be controlled efficiently by tuning the intensity and frequency detuning of control field, and the macroscopic entangled light with long entanglement time can be realized in this SMM system, over a wide range of initial states of the cavity field. This investigation can be used for achieving the macroscopic entangled light in a solid-state medium, which is much more practical than that in an atomic or molecular medium because of its flexible design.
