NFL Head Coach Firings: Buffalo Bills Have Plenty Of Coaching Competition

The Buffalo Bills are one of as many as nine NFL teams that are in the market for a new head coach after firing Chan Gailey and his coaching staff.

The Buffalo Bills have fired head coach Chan Gailey and his entire coaching staff. Unless the team also makes a move with GM Buddy Nix - we've yet to hear anything on that front - their search for a new head coach will begin with haste.

Buffalo will have plenty of competition as that search is conducted. It's barely past noon on the NFL's Black Monday, and including Gailey, seven head coaches have already lost their jobs. At least two more in-limbo coaches may be axed by the close of business tonight, as well.

Other head coaches in limbo include Carolina's Ron Rivera and Jacksonville's Mike Mularkey (the Jags fired GM Gene Smith today). That means that the Bills could be in direct competition with at least eight more teams in searching for their next head coach. Game on.
