Former Bills coach Fewell to meet with Giants, Bears
BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Perry Fewell is scheduled to interview with the New York Giants and the Chicago Bears for their defensive coordinator openings while his coaching future with the Buffalo Bills remains uncertain.
Fewell finished the season as the Bills interim coach, but was relieved of his duties along with the rest of the coaching staff a day after Buffalo (6-10) closed its season with a 30-7 win over Indianapolis. Fewell, though, is a candidate for the head coaching job and had a four-hour interview with the Bills general manager Buddy Nix on Monday.
Fewell's interview with the Giants is scheduled for Thursday; his visit with the Bears is next week.
The Giants are seeking a defensive coordinator after Bill Sheridan was fired on Monday. The Bears have a vacancy after coach Lovie Smith announced Tuesday that he is relinquishing his defensive play-calling duties.
Fewell has connections to both Smith and Giants coach Tom Coughlin.
