How many times have you said that about a team you root for? You get frustrated by a loss or some sort of decision making and just wish they blew it up and started over. Well, it happened, at least according to Fox Sports. Here’s Jay Glazer:
On Monday the Bills fired their entire coaching staff — including interim head coach Perry Fewell, FOXSports.com has learned. Fewell, however, is expected to officially interview Monday for the Bills’ permanent head-coaching position.
The team has already met with former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Bill Cowher and believes that his interest in the opening is genuine.
Buffalo is also making plans to interview several current assistant coaches to fill their head-coaching void. That list includes Eagles defensive coordinator Sean McDermitt, Cardinals assistant head coach Russ Grimm and Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. Other possibilities include Jets offensive coordinator Brian Scottenheimer and Chargers defensive coordinator Ron Rivera.
Wow, that’s a pretty bold move to start the offseason. No one expected to see a lot of the coaching staff around after a new head coach is chosen, but doing it for him is sending an interesting message. This means that unless he is hired as head coach, Perry Fewel won’t be on the Bills payroll next season. It also means that the Alex Van Pelt Experiment is over after just one season, and special teams coach Bobby April is hitting the job market, too.
It’s going to be a very interesting playoff race, but day one of the offseason has proved to be even more interesting for Bills fans. Let the interviewing begin.
