Report: Bills to Interview Eagles OC Frank Reich for Head Coaching Job

Despite an up-and-down season for the Eagles' offense, their offensive coordinator may be a hot commodity on the coaching carousel this year.

According to a report by the Buffalo News' Vic Carucci, the Bills will interview Frank Reich for their open head coaching position. Carucci also reported that former Eagles defensive coordinator and current Panthers DC Sean McDermott will interview for the job as well.

The Bills fired coach Rex Ryan with one game left in the season and offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn was made interim head coach. 

Reich spent 10 seasons as a quarterback with the Bills, primarily as the backup to Hall of Fame QB Jim Kelly during the Bills' impressive four straight Super Bowl appearances. He has served on the staffs for four different NFL teams including the Eagles and had spent two seasons as the San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator before joining Doug Pederson's staff in Philadelphia this season.
