The Bills are trying to get in on the Chip Kelly derby, but they’re clearly putting together a Plan B.
And one of the names on the Plan B (or maybe C) list seems to be Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett.
There was an item in the Washington Post Monday which mentioned two teams having “preliminary interest” in Haslett as a candidate for head coaching jobs, but it seemed as much like back-scratching as a report of serious interest in someone hiring Haslett.
Then Chris Russell of ESPNRadio980 in Washington mentioned that one of those teams was the Bills.
Haslett has a clear link there, having played for the Bills for seven seasons. But it’s unclear how serious the interest is, or whether they’ll ask for permission to interview him.
Then the question will become whether Redskins coach Mike Shanhan would allow him to interview next week if they beat the Seahawks, since he’s already indicated he’d squat on his son Kyle until the season was over.
