The Buffalo Bills will indeed look to their past to potentially be part of their future. Rumors have been swirling reuniting Frank Reich and the Buffalo Bills since Doug Marrone opted out and it looks like he will indeed interview for the head coach position.

Reich is the second AFC West offensive coordinator to be linked to Buffalo following Denver's Adam Gase. Reich has called the plays in San Diego for one season since being elevated from quarterbacks coach with the departure of Ken Whisenhunt. Prior to his time in San Diego, he was on staffs with the Arizona Cardinals and Indianapolis Colts.

A beloved figure in Buffalo for his years on the Super Bowl Bills, Reich is also interviewing with another one of his former teams, the New York Jets. He played nine seasons in Buffalo as Jim Kelly's back-up starting just eight regular season games but it's his two postseason starts that have cemented him as a legend in town. He went 2-0 including the Greatest Comeback in NFL History to bring the Bills to Super Bowl XXVII.
