Gill gets second interview

Turner Gill, the former Nebraska quarterback and assistant coach, will interview on the campus of the University at Buffalo for the head football coach position today and Wednesday, according to sources.

This is the second round of interviews for Gill, who interviewed with UB Athletics Director Warde Manuel last week in Detroit. Manuel would neither confirm nor deny Gill's interviews with UB. Gill is scheduled to meet with Manuel today and school President John Simpson on Wednesday.

Manuel, according to sources, also interviewed Michigan offensive line coach Andy Moeller and Connecticut offensive coordinator Norries Wilson, who on Monday was named the head coach at Division I-AA Columbia.

Gill is the director of player development/offensive assistant for the Green Bay Packers and assists with the wide receivers, but is best known for his time at Nebraska. He led the Huskers to a 28-2 record and three Big Eight championships in the early '80s.

He coached the Huskers' quarterbacks from 1992 to 2003 under Osborne and Frank Solich, then coached receivers in 2004 under current coach Bill Callahan. Gill, 43, was an assistant head coach under Solich in 2003 and was regarded as a top recruiter.

UB, which finished 1-10 this season, has been seeking a coach since firing Jim Hofher last month.
