Report: Former Alabama OC Brian Daboll is the favorite to land an NFL head coaching job
Since the year 2000, Brian Daboll has spent exactly 1 season in the college football ranks. That season, of course, was 2017, when he guided the Alabama offense to a national championship.
Since then, he’s been the offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills, and his stock continues to rise as the Bills continue their playoff run this weekend.
On Saturday morning, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Daboll’s time in Buffalo might be coming to an end. Per Schefter, Daboll has emerged as the favorite to replace Anthony Lynn as the head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers:

Schefter reports that Daboll went to high school with Chargers GM Tom Telesco, so there’s a history there.
Daboll has 5 Super Bowl rings as a member of the New England Patriots’ staff under Bill Belichick. He has never been a head coach at any level.
