Bills have contacted Seifert

The Bills coaching search has been very quiet lately. There have been no official reports of any new candidates visiting One Bills Drive since Mike Mularkey interviewed last week. But that doesn't seem to stop the circulation of rumors, as more candidates pop into the spotlight almost daily. <P> One such name is former Panthers coach George Seifert. After talking with George Seifert today, BillsReport has learned that Seifert has been contacted by the Buffalo Bills, among other teams.

However, Seifert stated that the Bills have not offered him an interview and he has not met with any Bills official. He would not directly say if he had been offered a contract, though that appears unlikely. He also would not speak of which other teams have contacted him.

George Seifert was last seen as a head coach for the Panthers. Before his stint in Carolina, Seifert won 2 Super Bowls with the San Francisco 49ers.

It is a normal process of the coaching search to contact many more candidates than who is actually in the running for the job, so not very much can be read into the fact that the Bills have contacted Seifert.

The Bills have interviewed seven candidates thus far, ex-Giants coach Jim Fassel, ex-Bears coach Dick Jauron, defensive coordinator Jerry Gray, Steelers offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey, New England's coordinators Charlie Weis and Romeo Crennel, and St. Louis' defensive coordinator Lovie Smith.

Our sources have previously reported that Mularkey, Jauron, Fassel, and Weis are the top candidates.
