While the assumption was always that quarterback coach Ken Dorsey would take over for offensive coordinator Brian Daboll on the Buffalo Bills’ staff, the team is clearly doing their due diligence to ensure they find the right person to be the next offensive coordinator.

The Bills saw Brian Daboll, who joined Buffalo in 2018 as their offensive coordinator, leave to take become the next head coach of the New York Giants. He followed Joe Schoen, who was assistant general manager for the Bills, but recently was named general manager of the Giants.

On Monday, it was reported that the Buffalo Bills had requested interviews with two coaches outside of the organization in what appears to be the official kickoff of finding Daboll’s replacement.

According to Shawn Stepner with WMAR, the Bills had requested to interview Tee Martin, who currently is wide receiver coach with the Baltimore Ravens. This was his first year with the Ravens as wide receiver coach and this past season was his first at the NFL level.

Prior to joining the Ravens, Martin spent a number of years at the collegiate level with stops at the University of Tennessee, USC, and the University of Kentucky.

Shortly after that interview was reported by Stepher, ESPN’s Dan Graziano tweeted that the Bills would be interviewing Edgar Bennett as well for the offensive coordinator position.

Bennett is a much more experienced coach as he has 29 years coaching at the NFL level and spent the past four seasons with the Raiders as their wide receiver coach. Prior to joining the Raiders, Bennett spent the majority of his coaching career with the Green Bay Packers which included three years as offensive coordinator from 2015 to 2017.

Last week, Brandon Beane was asked about this exact situation in terms of replacing Brian Daboll if he were to leave. The Bills general manager said they think highly of Ken Dorsey but they will also do their due diligence and that clearly looks to be the case.
