Report: Bills to interview Jerry Olsavsky

January, 28, 2014
The shuffling on the Buffalo Bills coaching staff continued Monday night, when the Cleveland Browns officially hired Jim O'Neil as defensive coordinator, Brian Fleury as assistant linebackers coach, and Jeff Hafley as secondary coach.

O'Neil served as outside linebackers coach this season for the Bills. Fleury was a defensive quality-control coach, while Hafley was hired this month as a defensive assistant after spending this season on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' staff.

With inside linebackers coach Chuck Driesbach fired this month (Driesbach is expected to join Mike Pettine's staff in Cleveland), the Bills now have vacancies to fill on their defensive staff.

As that process unfolds, the Bills will interview Pittsburgh Steelers defensive assistant Jerry Olsavsky, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Olsavsky, 46, played nine seasons for the Steelers from 1989-1997. After retiring, he coached in the high school and college ranks before joining the Steelers' staff in 2010.
