Bills, Lovie Smith reportedly to meet this weekend

Jonathan Daniel

The Bills fired Chan Gailey on Monday and now turn their search to former bears head coach Lovie Smith, who was fired on Monday as well.

Former Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith will likely be interviewed for the vacant coaching position for the Buffalo Bills, according to a report by Buffalo Rumblings. Smith was fired from the Bears job on Monday after finishing 10-6 and missing the playoffs following a 7-1 start. The Bears lost five out of six games down the stretch.

Smith joins a list of future interviewees for the Bills job that include Oregon Ducks head coach Chip Kelly, who is expected to be interviewed on Friday, and Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, who will also be interviewed sometime this weekend, according to reports.

The Bills have already interviewed former Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Wisenhunt and Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton for the job.

While with the Bears, Smith went 81-63 in nine seasons. He also recorded a 3-3 postseason record in three separate appearances and helped coach the Bears to Super Bowl XLI where they lost to the Indianapolis Colts.
