Bills Add Shanahans and Roman to HC Search

The Bills have interviewed a candidate from almost every division in the NFL. The latest candidates include a Shanahan combination and Greg Roman.

The Buffalo Bills are making their way around the NFL. The latest head coach candidates for the Bills include Kyle Shanahan and Greg Roman. Kyle's father, Mike Shanahan, has also been interviewed by the Bills. 

Although Kyle Shanahan was requested for a head coaching interview, but Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News said that the team could look to hire both Shanahans. If that were the case, Mike Shanahan would be the head coach and Kyle Shanahan would be the offensive coordinator. Buffalo may need to give Kyle Shanahan another title in addition to offensive coordinator to make this move possible. The NFL doesn't usually allow lateral movements and Kyle Shanahan is already the offensive coordinator of the Cleveland Browns.

Greg Roman is another candidate that the Bills have requested to interview for head coach. Adam Schefter of ESPN was the first to report Buffalo's interest in the 49ers offensive coordinator. Roman has interviewed for offensive coordinator with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Jacksonville Jaguars have requested an interview for their OC position. Roman's offenses are known for their success in the run game.

As for the Bills, they're certainly looking all over the NFL for their next head coach. Here is a look at interviews (requested/completed) that the Bills have completed by division.
