Former Bills Coaches Hot Commodities Once Again

New, comments

The Tennessee Titans parted ways with head coach Jeff Fisher last week. They are digging into Buffalo Bills history as they search league-wide for his successor. According to various reports, the Titans are expected to interview Gregg Williams, Mike Mularkey and Perry Fewell for the opening. You're probably aware that all three of those men served as head coach of the Bills within the past decade.

Though ESPN's Adam Schefter pointed out the phenomenon yesterday, it isn't the first time this off-season that all three former Bills coaches have been candidates for the same job.

Williams, Mularkey and Fewell were all considered for the Denver Broncos coaching position that eventually went to John Fox. Eric Studesville, a former Bills running backs coach, got an interview there, as well. Mularkey withdrew his name from consideration in Denver, just as Williams has since withdrawn his name from the Titans race.

Mike Munchak is expected to become Tennessee's next coach. For my money, Fewell should get the job. He's ready to be a head coach.
