Glazer: Bills axe entire coaching staff

Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com is reporting that the Buffalo Bills have relieved their entire coaching staff of 2009 duties a day after the Bills' 2009 season came to a close. The men are still under contract, and whoever becomes Buffalo's next head coach will ultimately decide their individual paths.

Included in the list of coaches is Perry Fewell, Buffalo's defensive coordinator for four years and interim head coach for the last seven games of the 2009 season. Glazer reports that while Fewell has been relieved of his duties, he will still interview for the Bills' vacant head coaching position today.

Fewell took over for the fired Dick Jauron on November 18 and led the Bills to a 3-4 record in his seven-game run as interim head coach. Now, it appears that his staff, at least - which includes solid coaches such as Bobby April, Bob Sanders and Sean Kugler - has been shown the door.

Glazer also reported Sunday night that the Bills view themselves as serious contenders for the services of former Pittsburgh head coach Bill Cowher. ESPN is reporting, however, that Cowher is unlikely to return to coaching in 2010. Glazer also lists Eagles defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, Cardinals assistant head coach Russ Grimm and Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier as assistants that GM Buddy Nix will target as he begins the interview process.
