The Buffalo Bills fired Chan Gailey at the end of the 2012 regular season. The Bills entered the season with high expectations but finished the year as one of the most disappointing teams in the league. Buffalo turned to Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone to become the team’s head coach moving forward. Marrone named Nate Hackett as offensive coordinator and hired Mike Pettine as the Bills defensive coordinator. Ten more coaching positions were filled on Tuesday
Eric Ciano (Head Strength and Conditioning), Donnie Henderson (Defensive Backs), Chuck Driesbach (Linebackers), Tyrone Wheatly (Running Backs), Jim O’Neil (Linebackers), Greg Adkins (Tight Ends), Anthony Weaver (Defensive Line), Brian Fleury (Defensive Quality Control), Samson Brown (Assistant Defensive Backs and Jason Rebrovich (Defensive Quality Control).
Ciano re-joins the Bills under Marrone. Henderson joins the Bills after coaching one year with Syracuse last season. Driesbach is the most experienced of all the coaches, with 36 years coaching. Wheatly is a former NFL running back and comes over from Syracuse where he worked under Marrone.
O’Neil joins the Bills from the Jets organization. Adkins also coached at Syracuse. Weaver also is a former member of the New York Jets staff. Fleury joins the NFL for the first time, coming over from Towson University. Brown is also a former member of the Jets organization. Rebrovich is another transfer from Syracuse.
