Bills general manager Whaley reportedly heading coaching search

BUFFALO, N.Y. — A person familiar with the Buffalo Bills coaching search tells The Associated Press that general manager Doug Whaley is serving as the point man.

The person adds that aside from a meeting with Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase this weekend, San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator Frank Reich is also on the list of coaching candidates.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Friday because the Bills have not outlined plans to replace Doug Marrone, who left Wednesday.

Reich is very familiar to Buffalo. He was the backup quarterback to Bills’ Hall of Famer Jim Kelly in the 1990s.

This is the first time Whaley is leading a coaching search. He will be assisted by team president Russ Brandon.
