The Buffalo Bills are expected to interview Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich for their vacant head coaching job, reports Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News. They will also interview former Eagles and current Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott.

Reich is in his first year with the Eagles, having spent the previous three seasons with the Chargers, the last two as their offensive coordinator. As a player, Reich is a hero for the Bills, where he spent nine years as Jim Kelly’s backup. In the first round of the 1992 playoffs, he and quarterbacked the Bills to their 32 point comeback against the Oilers, throwing four touchdown passes as Buffalo completed the greatest comeback in NFL history.

Interim head coach Anthony Lynn is considered the favorite for the Bills job, with Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin and Cardinals offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin also expected to be interviewed.
