There’s no word on whether Lovie Smith’s flying to Phoenix this weekend, but the Bills are interviewing him somewhere.
According to WGR Radio host Howard Simon, the Bills have scheduled an interview this weekend with the former Bears head coach.
The Bills are also talking to Oregon’s Chip Kelly, who is at the de facto NFL job fair site in advance of tonight’s Fiesta Bowl.
Smith went 81-63 in nine years in Chicago, but had missed the playoffs five of the last six seasons. He had three losing seasons, two of them 7-9 campaigns. But has Tim Graham of the Buffalo News points out, the Bills haven’t made it to 7-9 in any of their last eight seasons, so that doesn’t sound so bad by comparison.
