The Buffalo Bills requested permission from the 49ers to interview offensive line coach Mike Solari for the same position, but he will wait to determine whether he wants to pursue the opportunity, he told CSNBayArea.com.
On Tuesday, the Bills officially announced the addition of 49ers’ offensive coordinator Greg Roman to head coach Rex Ryan’s staff.

Solari has spent the past five seasons as offensive line coach with the 49ers. Then-coach Mike Singletary hired Solari in 2010, and Jim Harbaugh retained him on the 49ers’ staff during his four-year tenure as coach. The 49ers’ ranked in the top four in rushing yards each of the past three seasons.
Solari said he would wait to see what happens with the 49ers' head-coaching position before deciding his next move. Solari remains under contract to the 49ers for next season, but the 49ers are allowing their position coaches to seek other opportunities, he said.
General manager Trent Baalke on Tuesday traveled to Denver to meet with Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase for a second time about the 49ers’ head-coaching job.
