Billick's name has not been mentioned much during this year's coaching openings, but he has been approached by Buffalo and other teams in past years and has an impressive resume. The Eagles are exploring all options in their exhaustive coaching search, including talking to college coaches like Brian Kelly (Notre Dame), Chip Kelly (Oregon) and Bill O'Brien (Penn State), as well as recently fired head coaches like Chicago's Lovie Smith.

The Eagles have interviewed coordinators like Mike Nolan (Falcons, defense), Mike McCoy (Broncos, offense), Keith Armstrong (Falcons, special teams), Gus Bradley (Seahawks, defense), and have interviews scheduled this week with Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden.

Billick was broadcasting the NFC playoff game between Atlanta and Seattle and was not immediately available for comment. The Eagles declined to comment for this report.
