Does anyone want to coach the Bills?

According to, Jets’ offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer has declined the opportunity to interview with the Bills for their vacant head coaching position.

Schottenheimer has remarked throughout the season how much he enjoys working with new Jets coach Rex Ryan and rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez, and how truly content he is with his current job as the offensive coordinator of the league’s top-ranked running attack.

“I realize we’re probably only going to have him for as long as we’re in this tournament,” Ryan said, “but we’re enjoying it right now.”

“I’d love to be a head coach, but I say that with an asterisk,” Schottenheimer said Sunday after the Jets beat the Bengals in the wild-card round of the playoffs. “That’s my dream, but I want to be a head coach when the time is right, when the situation is right. I don’t want to just take a job to take a job.

Three things:

1) Who calls the NFL playoffs a “tournament?” Come on, Rex.

2) Good for Schottenheimer for waiting for the right opportunity to become a head coach. He realizes that if he fails, his chances of becoming a head coach for another team dwindle.

3) Does anyone want the Bills job? It’s one thing if Bill Cowher rejects you, but quite another when Brian Schottenheimer (a man who wants to become a head coach) does it.

Maybe the Bills should have given Perry Fewell more consideration before firing him. At least his team played hard for him after he took over for Dick Jauron.
