Lovie Smith will interview for Bills job

Jonathan Daniel

Inconsistency in Chicago isn't enough to turn away the Buffalo Bills.

Less than a week after firing Lovie Smith, the former Chicago Bears' head coach will interview with the Buffalo Bills for their vacant coaching position.

The Bears' front office parted ways with head coach Lovie Smith primarily for inconsistency over an eight-year span, as well as an inability to get the Bears' over the hump following a trade that brought quarterback Jay Cutler to Chicago. These concerns aren't enough to dissuade a Buffalo team who won only 57 games over Smith's eight seasons in Chicago, where he led the Bears to 84 wins.

Finishing 6-10 in 2012, it was the eighth consecutive season where the Buffalo Bills finished below .500. As an organization they haven't been to the playoffs since 1999 -- when Wade Phillips was their head coach, and Doug Flutie their starting quarterback. With a good nucleus on defense, particularly their offensive line, Lovie Smith could be exactly what the Bills need to get their franchise back on track.
