Report: Bills met with Cowher

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Buffalo Bills met with Bill Cowher this week in what he termed a "stealth" meeting about their soon to be vacant head coach position. The sources he cites say the meeting took place even before Buddy Nix was hired, suggesting he was either on board with the move or the Bills moved on without Cowher in mind after the meeting. The source said the meeting was "very productive" and included Russ Brandon as well as owner Ralph Wilson.

Also this morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Charlie Weis will not be the next coach. He said to keep an eye on Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron as a candidate, as he was offensive coordinator in San Diego when Nix was working for the organization.

According to Schefter, the search will begin in earnest tomorrow when interim head coach Perry Fewell will be interviewed for the permanent job.

Remember what Brian told us earlier in the week:

This is the time of year where reports surface about pretty much everything for teams with upcoming change, and for prominent men looking for jobs. Nothing has changed folks. Stay patient - things will really start cooking next week.

It's sure to be fast and furious with information this week. Keep it tuned to Buffalo Rumblings.
