The Buffalo Bills have requested permission to interview Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton for their vacant head coaching job, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Hamilton, 40, is a nine-year NFL coaching veteran, holding various offensive assistant jobs with the New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers, Chicago Bears, and the Colts. He also spent time on staff at Stanford University, where he mentored current Colts quarterback Andrew Luck before eventually following him to the NFL.

The Colts are hosting the Cincinnati Bengals in an AFC wild card playoff game tomorrow (Sunday) in Indianapolis, and any teams interested in interviewing Hamilton before then will have to wait for the conclusion of that contest, whether the Colts win or not. If Hamilton does interview with Buffalo, then, it'll take place sometime next week.

Buffalo's coaching search is a broad one that includes a lot of names; make sure you're up on the latest by following our StoryStream on the matter.
