Poll: Is Bills' coaching job attractive?
By James Walker
The Buffalo Bills will be searching for their third head coach in five seasons. The Bills fired embattled head coach Chan Gailey on Monday after posting a 16-32 record. Their search for a replacement will begin immediately.
That brings us to our latest poll question: How attractive is Buffalo’s head-coaching job? This will be a major factor in the kind of candidate the Bills can land.
The Bills have the NFL’s longest playoff drought at 13 years. A-list candidates would have to be convinced that the right pieces are in place to join the Bills.
Buffalo’s biggest issue is not having a quality quarterback on the roster. Buffalo is expected to part ways with the erratic Ryan Fitzpatrick before he is due a $3 million roster bonus in March. That means the Bills will be searching for a replacement via the draft or free agency. Other openings like Chicago and San Diego have quality quarterbacks already in place, which makes their openings more attractive.
The Bills have a few things going for them. Tailback C.J. Spiller is one of the most dynamic players in the NFL, and there are other talented players on the roster such as receiver Steve Johnson and defensive end Mario Williams.
So is Buffalo's opening highly attractive, average or not attractive at all?
