Report: Holmgren turns away Buffalo

In case you're keeping score in the Buffalo Bills' search for a head coach, another prominent name apparently isn't interested.

NFL.com senior columnist Vic Carucci reports Mike Holmgren "has rejected an overture from the Bills" because the former Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks coach and executive is believed to have his eye on an administrative job rather than one on the sidelines.

That means every one of the so-called A-list of Super Bowl-winning candidates has been accounted for in reportage -- for now.

Mike Shanahan has accepted an invitation to meet with the Bills about the opening. Jon Gruden, Bill Cowher and Holmgren declined.

Marty Schottenheimer also stated publicly he has not been in contact with the Bills about the job and, in regards to coaching, "I'm really not going to go back down that road again."
