After the Buffalo Bills sniffed around Bill Cowher -- and learned he's likely not coming back in 2010 -- they may be looking West.
Stanford coach and former NFL QB Jim Harbaugh might another leading candidate for the opening, after the Bills fired their entire coaching staff. Longtime NFL coaches Marty Schottenheimer and Brian Billick are also in the mix but, as the Buffalo News writes, a younger coach might be in order.
It will be interesting to see if Harbaugh has interest in an NFL job. He certainly wasn't interested in the medium-profile collegiate jobs that came up, saying he was a "Stanford man." Plus, he just signed an extension with the Cardinal.
But if he's offered the gig, it might be hard for him to turn down. Harbaugh is losing at least five assistant at Stanford, and he might want to join his older brother and Ravens coach John Harbaugh in the NFL.
