Bills fire offensive coordinator Rick Dennison after playoff loss

Share

Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison was sacked by the Bills on Friday after Buffalo was bounced from the playoffs and averaged fewer than six points per game over the final eight games of the season. They managed only three points in the wild-card loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars and failed to score more than 16 points in seven regular-season games.

With Dennison as offensive coordinator, the Bills finished 29th in total yards and 31st in passing yards.

Dennison joined Buffalo shortly after Sean McDermott was hired as the team's head coach past year.

Mr Trump himself sparked a storm of speculation last month when he appeared to slur words during a nationally televised address. Jackson didn't respond to an interview requested through the White House, and a White House spokesman declined to comment.

McCoy is expected to be a candidate to join McDermott's staff in Buffalo. Mike Shula, the former offensive coordinator in Carolina, previously worked with McDermott and Bills general manager Brandon Beane. The coach said any decisions would be his, but Beane would be involved with coordinating possible coaching changes with roster moves this offseason. "We're still in the process of getting that accomplished".

"We're building this thing together", McDermott said then. Averaging 176.6 passing yards per game, the Bills were second-to-last in that category, but thanks largely to stud running back LeSean McCoy, they were sixth in rushing offense at 126.1 yards per game. But there is one interesting connection: McDermott and McCoy have the same agent, Bob LaMonte. We will go through a lot of those scenarios leading up into the draft, but you do have to have one final voice to make that call. The recently fired coordinator was with the Denver Broncos in the same role prior to landing with the Bills.

Dennison was challenged by injuries at wide receiver and left tackle and changes at quarterback, with first-year head coach Sean McDermott going to rookie Nathan Peterman before reverting to Tyrod Taylor.
