Glazer: Bills fly to Minnesota to interview defensive boss
Operation “Cowher Contingency” has begun.
Members of the Buffalo Bills will fly to Minnesota Thursday
to interview Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier for the
Bills’ vacant head-coaching position, FOXSports.com has learned.
Frazier, also a former Eagles assistant coach, is considered
one of this year’s leading head-coaching candidates and
well-deserving of a shot. Frazier has helped fuel the Vikings
defense this year to become one of the most stingy and aggressive
units in the NFL.
Other candidates who could be in the Bills’ crosshairs
include Cardinals assistant head coach Russ Grimm, Eagles defensive
coordinator Sean McDermott and Jets offensive coordinator Brian
Schottenheimer. However, due to NFL rules restricting candidates in
action during this upcoming playoff week these coaches are not yet
able to be interviewed.
Chargers defensive coordinator Ron Rivera has also been
linked to the Bills’ opening, and if Buffalo chooses to interview
him he could do so this week with San Diego on a playoff bye.
