According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Bills former interim head coach Perry Fewell is going to accept the offer to become the defensive coordinator of the New York Giants.
Fewell was going back and forth between returning to coach under Lovie Smith in Chicago and coaching under Tom Coughlin in New York. The problem is Fewell has coached under both head coaches before, first with Coughlin in Jacksonville and later with Smith in St. Louis and Chicago. So the decision had to be anything but easy.
Apparently he saw the Giants as a better fit for him. This does not necessarily take him off the list for Buffalo’s head coaching position, but it appears likely. I don’t think it’s the case, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there was language in his contract with the Giants that allowed him to take the Bills head coaching post if it was offered to him. But taking another job just day or weeks after accepting a prior opening won’t curry a lot of favor in the coaching ranks. My guess is he’s staying put once he sign with the G-men.
