Let the coaching rumors begin.
And, if they’re right, Bills fans won’t have to follow them for long.
Ian Rapoport from the NFL Network tweeted on Sunday that the Bills head coaching job is Anthony Lynn’s to lose.
In addition, Adam Schefter from ESPN reports that former Jags head coach Gus Bradley is expected to join Lynn as defensive coordinator, should Lynn land a head coaching gig anywhere in the league.

Bradley was the defensive coordinator in Seattle from 2009-2012 as the Seahawks D rose to brilliance.
The Bills are thought to be preparing interviews for other candidates to be their head coach, including former quarterback Frank Reich.
Cardinals offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin is another name that has popped up in multiple Bills interview rumors.
Buffalo finishes their season Sunday against the Jets.
GM Doug Whaley is expected to address the media at 2pm Monday. It is unlikely he will be announcing who the new head coach is at that time.
However, since the top candidate is already in house and fulfills the obligations for interviewing set down by the NFL’s Rooney Rule, Buffalo’s search may be short lived.
