Bring on Bill Cowher.

With the Bills in the midst of a coaching search, that's the message fans intend to send team owner Ralph Wilson on a billboard to be displayed in Buffalo.

Organizer Patrick Moran said Thursday that an Internet campaign has raised more than the $1,125 needed to rent an electronic billboard for a week, starting Monday. It would feature the words, "Dear Mr. Wilson, we want this guy," superimposed over a picture of Cowher, who won a Super Bowl as the Pittsburgh Steelers' coach.

Moran also helped organize a campaign in November, when a billboard was rented demanding that Wilson clean house.

The Bills haven't commented on their coaching search since firing Dick Jauron in November, but Cowher has been widely mentioned as a candidate.

NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reported that the Bills reached out to Cowher more than a month ago. But Cowher didn't want to talk to the Bills during the season.

Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier was scheduled to interview with the Bills on Thursday.
