Bills fire offensive coordinator Dennison

Bills fire offensive coordinator Dennison

In that lone season, the offensive statistics suffered for the Buffalo Bills.

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. His successor hasn't been announced. But under Dennison's supervision, the offense struggled and finished at or near the bottom of the league in several statistical categories. Dennison's play-calling was questioned after Buffalo scored just three points against Jacksonville in the franchise's first playoff game in 18 years.

Prior to the Bills meeting the Panthers in Week 2 this season, McDermott said, "Mike Shula does an incredible job of moving pieces around" and called the Panthers a "very dynamic offense".

The Bills finished 29th in average yards per game (302.6) and were tied for 24th in offensive points scored (17.6) this season. The team's rushing attack was the sixth-best in the NFL.

The decision to fire Dennison may be linked to the Bills' quarterback situation.

Based on comments made by Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane, it's safe to say Tyrod Taylor isn't the quarterback of the future in Western New York.

"I've heard the reports also of that's what we were coaching or something along those lines".

Beane's offseason focus is clearly on the quarterback heading into free agency and the draft. And for that reason, and likely many others, the Bills will be looking for a new direction for the 2018 season. There are some early candidates, including former Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and Alabama offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, who has western NY ties.
