BUFFALO, N.Y. (KDKA/AP) – Former Pitt head coach Dave Wannstedt is looking at a possible return to the NFL as the next move in his career.

One Jan. 4, when Pitt’s former coach joined Larry & John on the KDKA-AM morning show, he said he would take a break after his resignation. After that, he planned on talking with Pitt about their plans for him, as well as possibly listening to some open NFL positions.

Listen to the interview:

On Thursday, the Buffalo Bills (4-12) said Wannstedt met with team officials for an open position in their organization, but they would not discuss the details of the meeting.

Wannstedt is a defensive-minded coach, an area where the Bills suffered this season. They allowed 5,786 total offensive yards to opponents and 2,700 of those were rushing yards.

After their season ended, the Bills fired inside linebacker coach DeMontie Cross.

Wannstedt has a relationship with current Bills coach Chan Gailey. In 2000, Wannstedt was the head coach for the Miami Dolphins and hired Gailey as his offensive coordinator.
