Which teams could be calling the Buffalo Bills requesting an interview with Brian Daboll?
During the fall meetings in October, the NFL voted and approved some changes for teams that are going to be searching for a new head coach. This year, teams that currently no longer have the head coach they started the year with or have informed their current head coach they will not be back at the end of the season, can begin requesting interviews starting today (December 27th).
As Nick Shook wrote, the interviews will be virtual and can only take place if the coach’s current employer provides consent.
The Buffalo Bills are not a team that is going to be looking for a head coach but could receive plenty of calls about long-time offensive coordinator Brian Daboll. He joined the Bills in 2018, the same year they drafted Josh Allen and has helped develop an offensive scheme that has helped the quarterback become one of the best in the league.
The first two years the Bills offense struggled as Daboll’s group ranked 30th in points and yards in 2018, and then 23rd in points and 24th yards in 2019. However, last year the Bills offense found great success and they finished second in the league in points and yards. A trend that has continued into this year with the Bills once again ranking in the Top 10 in both categories, currently third in points and sixth in yards.
Last offseason, Daboll generated plenty of interest for head coaching positions and interviewed with the New York Jets and Los Angeles Chargers. He once again should be a candidate that teams are looking to maximize their offense or find a coordinator that can help develop a young quarterback.
These are four teams that should be calling the Buffalo Bills to speak with offensive coordinator Brian Daboll about their current, or potential, head coach opening.
