According to @MikeGarafolo, the #Bills may also be interested in Hue Jackson as a HC candidate. He can't interview until next week.

Im ok with Hue, as long as he has minimal input on the personnel decisions. I think the Raiders new coach showed that Jackson is a helluva coach'and did a great job with that team.

I want to be the team that hires Hue Jackson as an assistant, not as the Head Coach.

The Raiders should have retained Hue Jackson, but having said that, I hope the Bills only interest is to "leave no stone unturned".

Two thoughts:

1) Rooney Rule (sorry No Saint, just stating the fact that he's a minority)
2) Possible Offensive Coordinator (that's his background)

Perhaps he has some history with some of the other coaching candidates and the Bills are exploring what pieces they can possibly fit together?

Then what about Horton?

He has always been successful where he has served. Not a bad pick. I think there are better but he is solid.

If I'm the Bills, I'm interviewing everyone and anyone to spread the word that things are different here.

The dropoff in Darren McFadden's production from 2011 to 2012 had as much to do with the coaching/scheme change as anything else after Hue Jackson was replaced by Dennis Allen. His scheme might be a good fit for our offensive personnel, although we'd certainly need another deep threat at WR.

This isn't an endorsement of Hue Jackson per se, but he is a talented offensive coach.

Jackson's a solid candidate, but the ideal scenario for me is Lovie at HC and Jackson at OC.

That's interesting--- although I wouldn't hate Mike Tice as OC with Lovie. There's an O-line in place in  Buffalo which they didn't have in Chicago.

Perfer him over Lovie Smith, who underacheived in Chicago.  Still rather have McCoy or Marrone among the "lesser known" names.

Ray Horton would already fuilfill that requirement, if they are indeed going to interview him in Arizona.
