The Philadelphia Eagles are “interested” in Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll. That’s according to John Clark, a sports anchor in Philadelphia. That makes three of the remaining four teams without a head coach that have been linked to Daboll.

Daboll has already interviewed with the Los Angeles Chargers and previously interviewed with the New York Jets, who hired Robert Saleh on Thursday night. The Houston Texans are “believed” to be interested, but nothing has been reported yet. The Texans hired general manager Nick Caserio last week, and he spent a significant amount of time with Daboll with the New England Patriots as a coach and front office exec.

Among the Eagles, Chargers, and Texans, Los Angeles would seem to be the most ideal landing spot for Daboll with a young QB, cap space, and a general manager he’s known since he was in high school.

Daboll can’t interview again until after the AFC Championship Game if the Bills win this weekend, and can’t be hired until Buffalo’s season is over. If the Bills lose, he can interview and be hired immediately.
