The Buffalo Bills hired some new members to both the coaching staff and the front office while everyone was celebrating Valentine’s Day.
The NFL offseason is a time filled with rumors and speculation, so it is nice when some actual hard news hits the airwaves.
The Buffalo Bills made a few minor staff announcements on Wednesday, starting with some new additions to the staff.
I wouldn’t expect fans to be too excited about any of these hires, but it is nice to know the background of those in the building, and this also gives a job history for those who one day wish to work for the Bills or any NFL team.
Seeing the different experiences had by all three new hires offers some insight into that aspirational job hunt.
The team also made a new addition to the coaching staff, adding a name many around the NFL may already know.
Terry Robiskie has been all over the NFL since beginning his coaching career with the Los Angeles Rams in 1982. He has worked in nearly every position on an offensive staff and spent last season with the Tennessee Titans as their offensive coordinator. As you may recall, that team was also playing in January.
He will have a more reduced role in Buffalo this year, but his experience will be invaluable for Brian Daboll and this offense in 2018.
There is a clear commitment by both Sean McDermott and the front office to bring some coaches with talent and experience to this team. Making the playoffs was exciting, and the goal is for that excitement with a playoff berth to shift to fans going wild after an actual playoff win.
Adding experienced individuals will help toward achieving that goal.
