Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll has been getting a lot of attention around the league for possible head coaching vacancies. Daboll has already interviewed with both the New York Jets and Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.

Now, defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier is also drawing attention from at least one team.

Frazier told the media on Monday during his weekly Zoom conference call that the Houston Texans have inquired with the Bills about setting up an interview for their vacant head coach position.

The Texans fired Bill O’Brien just four weeks into the 2020 regular season and replaced him with Romeo Crennel on an interim basis.

Frazier has been a head coach in the NFL before, going 24-32-1 with the Minnesota Vikings from 2010 to 2013. The Bills defense has ranked in the top-three in the NFL in yards allowed in two of his four seasons as defensive coordinator (2018 and 2019), and second in points allowed in 2019. This season, the Bills defense ranked 16th overall in points allowed and 14th in yards-against.

Under current NFL protocols, head coaching candidates may be interviewed all this week, but if the Bills were to win their Divisional Round playoff game on Saturday against the Baltimore Ravens, both Frazier and Daboll would not be allowed to be interviewed by other clubs until at least Jan. 25.

All interviews must be conducted virtually.
