Buffalo Bills' Anthony Lynn to interview for 49ers head coach job

New, comments

In addition to an interview with the Dolphins, Bills assistant head coach Anthony Lynn will interview with the 49ers about their vacant head coaching gig.

Buffalo Bills assistant head coach and running backs coach Anthony Lynn will interview for the San Francisco 49ers' head coaching job, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.

Lynn is also scheduled to interview with the Miami Dolphins, after the Bills granted him permission to do so on Monday. The 47-year-old former NFL running back played for the 49ers from 1995-96. You can catch up with the reactions of 49ers and Dolphins fans to the news of Lynn's interviews at Niners Nation and The Phinsider.

It's an interesting pair of teams to be showing interest in Lynn, for sure. The Dolphins are a divisional foe with a brand new general manager in Chris Grier. Lynn spent the past year working under Greg Roman on the Bills' coaching staff; Roman was part of the 49ers' mass coaching exodus last winter after Jim Harbaugh departed.
