According to Mark Maske of The Washington Post, Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur will interview for the Buffalo Bills' head coach vacancy. The Bills have had an opening available since Doug Marrone opted out of his contract last week.

The Bills are just the second (known) team to show interest in Shurmur this offseason. The Oakland Raiders interviewed the Eagles' offensive coordinator last week on Friday.

Shurmur hasn't been a head coach since his unsuccessful stint with the Cleveland Browns from 2011-2012. In 32 games coached under Shurmur's guidance, the Browns finished with a 9-23 record (.281%). Shurmur joined the Eagles as the team's offensive coordinator shortly after Chip Kelly was hired as head coach in 2013. The success the Eagles have had under Kelly has seemingly made Shurmur somewhat of an attractive coaching option.

So far, there has been no indication Shurmur is a serious favorite to land any of these jobs. In the meantime, it's still something to keep an eye on.
