Report: Bills interested in Mike Shanahan
Mike Shanahan is one of the more intriguing names to watch as a handful of NFL teams look to fill their head coaching vacancies. The Buffalo Bills, who are suddenly among the teams in need, reportedly have some interest.
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Bills could set up an interview with Shanahan this week.
Shanahan took a season off from coaching after being fired by the Washington Redskins last year. The 62-year-old won two Super Bowls with the Denver Broncos earlier in his career but finished with a record of just 24-40 in four seasons with the Redskins. It quickly became obvious that he would not be able to coexist with Robert Griffin III and the pressure that came along with coaching the No. 2 overall pick.
Shanahan was also expected to interview with the San Francisco 49ers this weekend. He served as the offensive coordinator for the Niners from 1992 through 1994.
Former Bills head coach Doug Marrone opted out of his contract with the team in a surprise move last week after an impressive 9-7 season. Marrone may have even cost the Bills a chance to bring in a reputable team president.
There seems to be no shortage of interest in Shanahan. It would be a surprise if he doesn’t find a home in the NFL for 2015.
