Gailey now the favorite in Buffalo

League sources expect Chan Gailey to be hired as coach of the Bills. That news could come Tuesday afternoon — the Bills have scheduled a press conference at their facility at 2 p.m. ET.

A┬álongtime coordinator in the league and former coach of the Cowboys (1998-99), Gailey has emerged as the favorite in Buffalo’s coaching search, according to sources. A contract could be forthcoming.

Gailey was ousted as the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator before the start of the season.

Gailey has met twice with the Bills, and sources close to other Buffalo candidates are under the belief that he will get the job soon. Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier had been a top candidate, but a source close to him said that Frazier expects Gailey to land the job.

Numerous coaches have turned down the opportunity to interview with the Bills since they fired coach Dick Jauron in November.
