Ken Dorsey, Buffalo Bills
If the Bills believe Ken Dorsey can continue contributing to the success of Josh Allen, he’ll likely be the candidate who fills Buffalo’s potential void left by Daboll next season. Buffalo’s front office is big on continuity and Dorsey would provide just that.
Dorsey has worked with Josh Allen since he was drafted in 2018 and helped Cam Newton win the MVP as his quarterback coach in 2015. He has the qualifications commensurate with an OC gig and the opportunity here could be in sync with the demand.
What we don’t know about Dorsey is how he would do calling the plays. He’s had a hand in developing Allen and the two have certainly built a solid foundation with each other, but has he learned enough in the league as a quarterback’s coach to make the leap to play-caller?
The Bills will have their pick of the litter when they have to select who they bring in or promote to run their offense. This position could be one of the most coveted assistant jobs throughout the league. Young coordinators or offensive minds who aspire to someday be a head coach should be drooling over this vacancy.
There’s still a long way to go in the 2020 season, which could also be the determining factor on if Daboll leaves for a head coaching job. But Buffalo has their quarterback. And they have a solid foundation to continue building with. All four of these candidates could be reasonable to consider if Buffalo’s offensive coordinator role does become available.
