Ken Whisenhunt big name to watch in Bills coaching search

By Tim Graham

WhisenhuntMugReports percolated Monday night about candidates for the Buffalo Bills' coaching job.

Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton and Syracuse coach Doug Marrone reportedly will interview for the opening, and former Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith reportedly wants it.

Another name Bills fans should focus on is former Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt.

A league source informs me Russ Brandon, about to be named team president, is fond of Whisenhunt and would like the opportunity to land him as Chan Gailey's replacement.

The Cardinals also fired Whisenhunt on Monday. He coached the Cardinals for six seasons, guiding them to the Super Bowl.

His record was 45-51 with a 4-2 record in the postseason. As lackluster as that might seem, keep in mind Whisenhunt coached two of the Cardinals three winning seasons over the past 28 years.
