Shanahan spends much of Tuesday talking to Bills

The Buffalo Bills are prepared to pay top dollar to land a Super Bowl-winning coach and former Denver Broncos coach Mike Shanahan was the first to sit down with them, spending most of Tuesday interviewing for the team’s head-coaching vacancy, according to sources.

Bills COO Russ Brandon is overseeing the search and spearheading the effort to replace recently fired Dick Jauron. The team also wanted to interview Bill Cowher, according to sources, but he has declined to explore any coaching opportunities until after the season. Shanahan is also interested in exploring other options, with league sources identifying Houston, Washington, Chicago and Dallas as other possibilities that would appeal to him.

Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has long been a fan of his, for example.

Shanahan compiled a 232-143 record (including playoff games) in Denver, and led the Broncos to victories in Super Bowl XXXII and Super Bowl XXXIII.
