As has been already discussed on this site, in order for Coach Fewell to have a chance to win our HC job, he will at least have to have a winning record. As it stands now, he has a 1-2 record and the situation is not looking promising for Perry just 6 days after his first win. For other HC options, we have also heard the rumors of bringing big named head coaches to Buffalo, but so far we have been denied more times than Meg Griffin. One name that has not been mentioned as an option is the master of the Blue "Smurf Turf" in Boise, their head coach Chris Petersen.
Living in Hawaii, I have had several opportunities to watch Peterson's team demolish the UH warriors and any other team who gets in his way. This includes beating numerous high ranked opponents such as Oregon earlier this year, and his biggest win in the 2007 fiesta bowl vs. Oklahoma. He has taken a program out of nowhere to greatness. As a HC, he currently has a record of 47-4 (25-0 at home) and he won the Paul "Bear" Bryant Award for National Coach of the Year in 2006. Although he just received a contract extension in 2007 for 850,000 a year for 5 years, he would have the opportunity to make much more in Buffalo. Plus, he i doubt he would complain about not having anything to do in Buffalo after coming from Boise. So why not give him a chance in the big leagues? His players love him and he wins (especially at home), so why is he not even an option?To me it would make much more sense than some other still unproven possible hires (i.e. Mark Trestman or Jim Haslett)...
Should Chris Petersen be considered as a future Bills Head Coach?
