Bills Interviewing Former Jaguars OC Greg Olson For Offensive Coordinator Job

Ian  Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Bills are bringing in former Jaguars OC Greg Olson for an interview regarding their offensive coordinator vacancy on Monday.

  • Rapoport also confirms that Chiefs co-offensive coordinator Brad Childress is also a candidate for the job.

The Bills have also been linked to former Vikings OC Norv Turner.

Olson, 53, began his NFL coaching career with the 49ers back in 2001 as their quarterbacks coach. He’s worked for a number of teams including the Bears, Lions, Rams, Buccaneers, Jaguars and Raiders since then before returning to Jacksonville in 2015 to run their offense.

Unfortunately, the Jaguars elected to fire Olson back in October after he lost to the Titans.

Childress, 60, began his NFL coaching career with the Eagles as their quarterbacks coach back in 1999. He was later promoted to offensive coordinator before being hired as the Vikings head coach in 2006.

After being fired by the Vikings, Childress spent one year with the Browns before he was hired by the Chiefs as their spread game analyst and later took over as offensive coordinator for the 2016 season.

In 2016, the Chiefs were No. 4 in points scored, No. 20 in total yards, No. 15 in rushing yards and No. 19 in passing yards.
