Buffalo Bills' Anthony Lynn interviewing for 49ers offensive coordinator job

New, comments

Two weeks after interviewing for their head coach opening, Bills running backs coach Anthony Lynn is back with the same franchise to interview for a position a little lower on the organizational chart.

Buffalo Bills assistant head coach and running backs coach Anthony Lynn is interviewing for the San Francisco 49ers' offensive coordinator position, according to Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com.

Two weeks ago, Lynn was interviewing for the 49ers' head coaching job. Jed York ultimately hired Chip Kelly for that gig, but Kelly is now interviewing Lynn for a role on his staff.

The move, should it occur, would be a promotion for Lynn, even though he holds an assistant head coach title with the Bills. Lynn played running back for the 49ers for two seasons in 1995-96. He doesn't have any historical connections to Kelly, but must have impressed York enough to be brought back for a second look.

An assistant coach since 2000, Lynn does not have any play-calling experience, but would likely defer to Kelly in that regard, anyway.
