Schottenheimer Rejects Buffalo's Advances

Brian Schottenheimer is reportedly turning down an offer from the Bills to interview for their head coaching job.


Even though the Jets granted the Bills permission, New York offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer declined the chance to interview for the Buffalo head coaching job this week or after the season, according to sources.


Brian has commented on how much he is enjoying himself in New York. It's a good situation for him. Rex Ryan is very hands on with the defense, which leaves him a lot of autonomy with the offense. He's a young guy and knows he'll probably have another chance. The only thing he'll leave for is probably the perfect opportunity. I guess he doesn't think that's waiting for him in Buffalo.

I'm lukewarm on Schottenheimer. However, he has done great work as of late, and it's one less distraction this week.
