The Bills' head-coaching job appears to be a hot commodity, at least in the initial days after Chan Gailey and six other NFL head coaches were fired.

Among the candidates rumored to be interested in the Bills' opening are Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone and Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton, who reportedly have interviews set up with the team, and ex-Bears coach Lovie Smith, who was fired Monday.

But the candidate that the Bills apparently are eyeing is ex-Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt, who was fired by Arizona on Monday. Word from Buffalo is that new Bills president Russ Brandon is a fan of Whisenhunt's and is interested in bringing the coach who led Arizona to a 45-41 record in six seasons in Arizona, including a Super Bowl berth in 2008.
