Earlier this month, former Ravens coach Brian Billick was coy regarding his interested in the Bills’ head-coaching job. He reportedly had begun to line up potential staff members, in the event the call came.
But the call never came.
And now Billick is confused.
“Why [G.M. Buddy Nix]
had not called a coach with a Super Bowl ring, 10 wins a year for nine
years, having orchestrated the highest-scoring offense and defense in
the history of the league, is a question worth asking,” Billick said, per WGRZ (via Tim Graham of ESPN.com).
Um, Brian? I think you just answered it.
Look, we realize that a certain amount of self-promotion is needed in order to succeed in the NFL. But reciting your own resume is usually bad form, and it creates the impression that Billick has a mouthful of sour grapes.
