Perry Fewell will interview for the Bills head coaching job this week, but he’s a long shot to land that job.
It doesn’t sound like he will be out of work for long, though.
NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora reports Fewell is likely to become Lovie Smith’s new defensive coordinator in Chicago if he doesn’t get the Bills gig. Bears fans wanted an entirely new defensive scheme, but that would require a new head coach.
As we were just about to post that news, the Associated Press reported that Fewell will interview Thursday with the Giants about their defensive coordinator position.
Fewell is a natural fit in Chicago, as he worked under Smith in St. Louis and Chicago in 2005. The Giants don’t run a Tampa 2 defense, the scheme Fewell was raised in.
