Nobody else wanted it, from many reports.

I think Leslie Frazer wanted it. But nobody wants to give him a HC job...

I think it is more about impatience and wanting someone now versus waiting potentially up to 3 more weeks.

I'd guess that when Bill turned them down- he was asked who he would recommend.

How bad is it in Buffalo? They hire a guy to be their head coach that was fired as an offensive coordinator during pre-season last year. :HeadBanger

I guess the 50 year old Leslie Frazier was too young for the 91 year old Ralph Wilson. He gets rid of 59 year old Dick Jauron to hire 58 year old whippersnapper Chan Gailey. Don't forget, Wilson had Marv Levy acting as his G.M. into his 80's.

There were reports/speculation that Grimm wouldn't interview for the job after talking to Mularkey about his experience in Buffalo. Apparently, it must not be a great place to work.

Or Grimm really had no chance so he withdrew his name versus another embrassing non selection.

I'm not even going to say what I want to say...

once again an NFL owner gives an old has been a job instead of a young, creative up and coming candidate...

I feel for the dedicated Bills fan.

Compared to the 91 year old Ralph Wilson, the 58 year old Chan Gailey is a whippersnapper. He probably doesn't like the young, creative up and coming candidates because they remind him too much of his spoiled grandchildren.

:Agree 100%

As if we haven't seen this story play out 100's of times before (i.e. old re-tread coach, getting another chance. Really--has it ever worked out?

This is why I love my team and the family who owned it....

the crazy thing is most coaches fail...so why repeat failure?

We need a Diaper Rule.... if the owner needs a diaper then it's time to go....

literally.
