The Buffalo Bills have requested permission to interview Arizona Cardinals’ assistant head coach and offensive line coach Russ Grimm as well as and New York Jets’ offensive coordinator Brain Schottenheimer for their head coaching vacancy.
Whether either actually interviews for the position remains to be seen as both seem content where they are now.
Reports have circulated over the past several days – from WIVB’s John Murphy as well as from ESPN’s John Clayton – that Grimm would turn down any interview requests that came his way from Buffalo. Meanwhile, Schottenheimer has repeatedly said that he’s happy in New York.
Buffalo’s interim head coach Perry Fewell and Vikings’ defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, who has been deemed the favorite for the job by some, have already interviewed for the position.
