The Buffalo Bills would like to talk to an assistant coach from a division rival as they continue their head-coaching search, as they’ve asked the New York Jets for permission to speak to offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.
However, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports that for the time being, Schottenheimer is not interviewing with the Bills. At the moment, all of his focus is on preparing for this weekend’s playoff game against the San Diego Chargers.
The Bills also want to talk to Cardinals assistant head coach/running game coordinator Russ Grimm. It’s also unclear whether Grimm will interview because he, too, has a game to prepare for.
With Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier considered the favorite to get the job, the Bills may need to be patient and wait until multiple playoff teams’ postseasons are over before they can interview all their desired candidates.
