Rams, 49ers want to interview Buffalo Bills interim coach Anthony Lynn

The Bills’ interim head coach is in demand.

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

At least two NFL teams are interested in interviewing Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator and interim head coach Anthony Lynn. The Los Angeles Rams have formally requested to speak with Lynn according to ESPN Insider Adam Schefter. A separate report from Ian Rapoport says the San Francisco 49ers - who don’t even have a general manager - want to talk to Lynn, too.

Other rumors are floating around, linking Lynn to the Jacksonville Jaguars and Denver Broncos openings, but nothing has been reported by reputable outlets. The Broncos, in particular, make sense since Lynn played on teams in Denver with their current general manager, John Elway.

Lynn is the front-runner for the open job in Buffalo, but he has not met with Bills general manager Doug Whaley about the job and owner Terry Pegula told the Associated Press that Lynn was a candidate but “not a lock” to replace Rex Ryan.

The only other team with a head coaching openings are the San Diego Chargers.
