On Tuesday, we brought you a report that newly installed Bills president Russ Brandon is “fond” of former Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt and that the team was expected to interview him as soon as Wednesday for their head coaching job.
The Bills website reports that the interview has taken place in Arizona. Brandon, General Manager Buddy Nix, Assistant General Manager Doug Whaley and senior vice president of football administration Jim Overdorf were all on hand for the interview. Whaley, who worked with Whisenhunt when both men were with the Steelers, spoke to the website about Whisenhunt.
“We go way back. We won some Super Bowls together so I have high regard for his coaching acumen,” Whaley said. “Personally I know him and we’ll see what happens. I know he’s got a lot of opportunities. We haven’t decided. We still have to figure out what we’re going to do, but I can provide some insight on how he performed when I was with him.”
Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton told reporters that he would also be meeting with the Bills on Wednesday and the Associated Press is reporting that Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy will interview with the team this weekend.
