Three years ago when the Buffalo Bills were searching for their new head coach, they tried to lure big names like Mike Shanahan and Bill Cower.
They ended up with Chan Gailey, and three years later they're back to square one.
This year, the Bills are looking at every possible aspect to find a head coach that could spark the change the franchise so desperately craves for. Buffalo has reportedly interviewed former Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt as well as their defensive coordinator, Ray Horton. The Bills also have meetings scheduled with Mike McCoy, who is currently the offensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos, and Chip Kelly, who is the head coach for the NCAA's Oregon Ducks.
The Bills appear dedicated to find the leader that can change the perception of the franchise from the laughing stock it is to the contender it once was. Whoever Buffalo decides to hire to take on that daunting task is in for a real challenge. The Bills have missed the playoffs for the past 13 seasons, and have had little success within their division.
The Bills know they will also need to address their personnel issues in order to be successful. Buffalo's weak points appear to be at quarterback and linebacker. However, the Bills need to address their head coaching vacancy before they can plug in those parts. The coaching search looks as if it will be diligent and it could take a few weeks for the Bills to find the right guy for the job.Tags: Buffalo, Buffalo Bills, Football, NFL
