Longtime Pete Carroll protege Kris Richard is getting a head-coaching interview.

Richard will interview with the Bills on Sunday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The 37-year-old Richard played for Carroll at USC, spent five years playing in the NFL and then returned to USC to take a job on Carroll’s coaching staff. When Carroll left USC for Seattle, Richard went with him, first as assistant defensive backs coach, then as cornerbacks coach, then as defensive backs coach and finally, in 2015, getting promoted to defensive coordinator.

Other candidates for the Bills’ job include their own interim head coach Anthony Lynn, Cardinals offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin, Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott and Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich.

  1. Great DB coach. Awful defensive coordinator. There are lots of guys, including Richard Sherman, who can’t wait to see him go.

    In other words, he’s a perfect fit for the Bills. Please take Bevell with you.

    Talk about projecting.

    Nothing on film backs up this assertion.

    Wanting it to be true (for whatever warped reason) and it actually BEING true are two completely different things.

    You mean** gasp** football is a team game? And the presence or absence of any player affects the other players around him? Wow! This is really stunning news. You should alert different NFL teams because they may not have thought of this.

    Sherman is an All Pro and is an outstanding CB. In the years since he has entered the NFL, he has 30 INTs. That is 10 more than the next closest CB in that span of time.

  5. Frank Reich is a no brainer. Offer him a job before he changes his mind!

    Then dump Waley and you’re on your way!

  6. I like the guy but Buffalo do you really want the 3rd man up after Gus Bradley (fired) and Dan Quinn (looks good now but was in question of keeping his job much of last season)?

    Seattle isn’t a magical well of coaching talent. Pete built the D and has competent guys run his program. Even if Seattle had serious coaching depth, you’d now be scraping the bottom.

  7. Flies in, checks the Rooney Rule box, flies back home. Nothing to see here kids. The guy is not HC material, no matter what color he may be. That racist policy needs to go – it helps absolutely nobody, nor should it. Reverse discrimination is still discrimination.

    So, are you speaking for all of White America or just yourself? Last time I checked everyone in America is a minority, except white American’s. And you’re complaining about “reverse discrimination?” That strategy was created by the Reagan administration to attempt to defeat affirmative action.

    I say it’s high time the NFL actually higher another black coach, for lord knows there’s been many a failed white coaches given the pink slip each year. What’s wrong with giving 1 or 2 minorities a shot at being a head coach?
