Report: Bills coach Anthony Lynn in contention for LA Rams opening

New, comments

League sources suggest the Rams might interview him for head coach.

Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn is a coach on the rise in today's NFL. Even as Buffalo's running backs coach a year ago, Lynn was being invited to interview for head coaching positions in recognition of his talent.

He was promoted to offensive coordinator following the firing off Greg Roman, and his time with that position has been mostly positive. The Bills are the top rushing team in the league, and although their passing game is at the bottom of the barrel (which could be chalked up to injuries and poor individual play), the team hasn't lacked for points this season.

Lynn was already being discussed as Buffalo's head coach candidate if Rex Ryan were fired, and it appears one more opportunity may be popping up: the recently-vacated LA Rams job.

Depending on Buffalo's plans, this could accelerate the timeline on Ryan's firing if they were hoping to hold on to Lynn.

Do you think Lynn is ready to be a head coach? Would you have him in charge of the Bills?
