Buffalo Bills interview Joe Philbin, per report

New, comments

ESPN has reported that the Bills have interviewed former Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin for an unspecified vacancy

In a report from Rob Demovsky at ESPN, the Buffalo Bills have conducted an interview for one of their coaching vacancies. In an article primarily focused on the Green Bay Packers hiring Nathaniel Hackett (yes, THAT Nathaniel Hackett) to be their next offensive coordinator, Demovsky tosses in that Joe Philbin has interviewed with the Buffalo Bills and two other teams. The report does not indicate which position the Bills were looking at Philbin for. Currently the Bills still have vacancies for their special-teams coordinator, wide-receiver coach and offensive-line coaching positions.

Aside from looking a lot like the guy who played The Devil in Constantine, Bills fans should remember Philbin’s stint as the head coach of the Miami Dolphins from 2012 to 2015. Philbin was most recently with the Green Bay Packers as their offensive coordinator and interim head coach after Mike McCarthy was let go mid-season. Along with that experience, Philbin has worked with the Indianapolis Colts as an assistant head coach and offensive-line coach (2016 and 2017). Philbin has extensive experience with the offensive line, working in Green Bay from 2003 to 2011, mostly with the lineman. It seems like a safe bet Philbin is on the Bills’ radar to remake the offensive line after they missed out on Sean Kugler.
