Buffalo Bills interviewing Greg Olson for OC job

New, comments

It appears Brad Childress is no longer a candidate.

Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News is reporting that the Buffalo Bills will be interviewing Greg Olson for their vacant offensive coordinator position.

Two days ago it was reported by Ian Rapoport that the Bills and new head coach Sean McDermott had narrowed their search down to Olson and Chiefs co-offensive coordinator Brad Childress. As Carucci mentioned in his report, the search now seems to be singularly focused on Olson.

Olson was most recently the OC for the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was hired in January 2015, but only got one full season with the Jaguars before being let go following their Week 8 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Prior to working in Jacksonville, he was the OC for the Oakland Raiders for two seasons. Many will point out Olson’s lack of success in the NFL, but he has not exactly been working with top talent at the most important position in sports. Here is a list of QBs he has coached.

If the Bills hire him as their offensive coordinator he may once again be tasked with mentoring and coaching a young quarterback.
