If Marrone Opts Out, Reich is a Candidate

If Doug Marrone opts out of his contract with the Buffalo Bills, Jason La Canfora believes that Frank Reich will become the next head coach of the team.

If Doug Marrone opts out of his contract with the Buffalo Bills, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is pretty confident on Buffalo's next head coach.

Bob Glauber, NFL columnist for New York's Newsday, suggested that Frank Reich would emerge as a head coach candidate for the Bills if Marrone opted out. La Canfora responded to the tweet by saying:

"He'll be THE candidate. Job will be his."

La Canfora noted that he's hearing about tension between Marrone and Bills GM Doug Whaley.

"Continue to hear about friction between Doug Marrone and Doug Whaley in Buffalo. Interested to see if or how this comes to a head."

Reich was the offensive coordinator of the San Diego Chargers this season. He's very familiar to Bills fans as he was with Buffalo from 1985 to 1994 as a backup quarterback. Reich is most famous for leading the Bills in "The Comeback," a Wild Card playoff game between Buffalo and the Houston Oilers. Houston was able to get out to a 35-3 lead in the game, only to lose to Buffalo 41-38. Reich threw four touchdown passes in the second half of the game to led the Bills back.
