According to Vic Carucci, there doesn’t appear to be any substance to the Bills’ reported interest in Packers QBs coach Alex Van Pelt for their offensive coordinator vacancy.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is hearing that the Bills may be inclined to pursue Alex Van Pelt for their offensive coordinator job, depending on when Green Bay’s season is over.
Earlier in the day, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers advocated for Van Pelt getting some interest from offensive coordinator jobs and sure enough, a report surfaces that the Bills could have interest.
The Bills were set to interview Greg Olson for the job. However, he’s reportedly planning to join the Rams as their QBs coach.
Other candidates mentioned in relation to the Bills’ offensive coordinator position include Chiefs co-coordinator Brad Childress and former Vikings OC Norv Turner.
Van Pelt, 46, began his NFL coaching career with the Bills back in 2006 as their offensive quality control coach and worked his way up to offensive coordinator/QBs coach in 2009. After the Bills’ staff was fired, Van Pelt joined the Buccaneers and took the position of QBs coach.
In 2012, Van Pelt joined the Packers as their RBs coach before he was promoted to QBs coach in 2014.
We’ll have more regarding the Bills’ coordinator job as the news is available.
