Interviews for head coaching positions are known to take a good deal of time. Some take four hours, some longer. Some are broken into two parts with a couple of hours each day. Sean McDermott’s with the Bills went almost seven hours straight.

That according to Bills owner Terry Pegula, who GM Doug Whaley had first on the interview list for a reason.

“We sat through his interview and I can’t tell you exactly I am going to guess it was close to seven hours, he never stuttered, he never hesitated,” said Pegula of McDermott in an appearance on the John Murphy Show. “When asked a question this wasn’t somebody who was practicing for a job interview, it was someone you could tell was practicing all his life for what he is about to try and do. When he walked out we just sat and stared at each other like, ‘Wow, that was impressive.’

“He just had every answer, plans, he brought a book, this wasn’t a prepared book by agent this had scribbling all over it, stuff crossed out, names written in it, it was about three inches thick, just his notes. He said, ‘This isn’t my only book, but I brought my best book.'”
