Chan Gailey to the Buffalo Bills anyone?

Per the Buffalo News:

League sources say the Bills’ head-coaching search could come to a quick conclusion – within a day or two - and that Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier is not going to be the choice for the job.

Gailey meets the preference of Bills General Manager Buddy Nix of having a man who has prior head-coaching experience. He also fills the Bills’ desire of getting an offensive-minded coach.

Gailey most recently served as offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs in 2008. The Chiefs changed coaching staffs after the 2008 season and Gailey was retained. But he was fired by new coach Todd Haley just two weeks before the start of the regular season. Haley, an offensive coach, apparently had philosophical differences with Gailey and decided he wanted to call the plays himself.

57 years old, uh and he isn't Leslie Frazier? KC was 26th in scoring in 2008, In his first five years at Georgia Tech, he had compiled a 37-27 record

And here is an article on him:

He knows a lot about football. You could do worse than having him around. But you could also do better.

Georgia Tech learned as much last fall. In six seasons Gailey never had a losing record but never beat Georgia. He could take a team so far — in 2006 the Jackets won the ACC Coastal but lost the conference title to Wake Forest in the worst game ever played — but no further. If he wasn’t quite the definition of mediocrity, he was close.

  10. C'mon....The Bills want an offensive coach with experience yet Brian Billick with as many SB rings as Cowher doesn't get a sniff. Georgia Tech got significantly better the minute Gailey left. He's an offensive coach with experience which is the only thing that qualifies him as a candidate. He's the John McCain of the coaching search. Old, not good enough to do the job, yet the only piece of shit that'll take it. Much like the country i'd prefer the younger Negro whose team will onside kick if up by 50.

    The only rationale for hiring him would be that Ralph expects a lockout. As bad as the Bills are and as Gailey is 8-8 gets him fired. He's set up for failure. Unless he makes the playoffs fans will want him canned. Frazier would get a leash as would Billick.

  13. "Gailey's first offensive coordinator job in the NFL was with the Denver Broncos in 1989, they went to the Super Bowl.

    Gailey was with the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1994 - 1997. The Steelers won their division each of those seasons.

    He was head coach of the Dallas Cowboys in 1998 and '99 and made the playoffs both seasons.

    Gailey was offensive coordinator of the Miami Dolphins in 2000 and 2001. Miami went 11-5 both seasons.

    He jumped from there to Georgia Tech, where his teams made bowl games all six of his seasons."
