One of Chan Gailey’s chief mentors in coaching is former Broncos, Giants and Falcons head coach Dan Reeves. The 66-year old former sideline boss has commented favorably on the Bills’ hire of Gailey. But now he left open the possibility of helping Gailey.

Reeves has told WIVB-TV in Buffalo that he would not rule out coming to work on Gailey’s staff.

“He hasn’t reached out to me,” Reeves told WIVB-TV, “but I coached him in Little League and he might give me a chance. He might come back and try to see if I could help him out.”

When asked by Channel 4 if Reeves would be open to working with Gailey in Buffalo he said the following.

“I tell you, if I could help Chan Gailey out, I would certainly be interested in that.”

Gailey got his first NFL coaching job under Reeves in Denver as his special teams coach and later as offensive coordinator. Reeves’ last season as head coach was in 2003 with the Falcons, but reportedly interviewed for the 49ers offensive coordinator post just last January.
