Marv Levy would be interested in Buffalo Bills job

New, comments

We think he’s kidding.

The Buffalo Bills just fired their head coach. The last Bills coach to last four full years or longer was Marv Levy and the Hall of Famer was asked about returning to the sideline in a radio interview with Levack & Goz in Albany.

"If they offered I might do it," Levy said laughing. "It was one of those things where after 47 years of coaching I really needed to get that deep breath to step aside but after a couple of years passed I very much would have liked to have gone back..."

He’s not crazy, though.

"I'd do it,” he added, “but I'm not deluding myself to think that the offer would come. If the offer did come I sure would consider it. Sure."

Levy amassed a 112-70 head coaching record in Buffalo after turning around a dismal Bills team in the 1980s to a perennial powerhouse in the 1990s. Levy, currently 91, was with the Bills from 2006 to 2007 as general manager.
