Finding a head coach is more difficult for some NFL teams than others, which is exactly what the Bills are experiencing the hard way. Now two weeks into the process, we hear their coaching search has become embarrassing, with more candidates turning down interviews than those showing an interest in the job. After speaking to bigwigs like Mike Shanahan and Bill Cowher but making no headway, the team has since been denied by Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and Chargers defensive coordinator Ron Rivera, two candidates whom new GM Buddy Nix clearly had a liking for. We're told that the cloud of uncertainty surrounding the franchise likely had a lot to do with the snubs. Thus far, only former interim coach Perry Fewell and Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier have agreed to formal interviews, leaving Frazier as the front-runner almost by default. Although Cardinals assistant Russ Grimm is lined up for an interview and others still could change their minds about the job, it appears Buffalo's pickings will be alarmingly slim.
