The Buffalo Bills coaching staff continues to go through plenty of changes over the past few weeks. It started when Brian Daboll was named head coach of the New York Giants.

The Bills would begin the search for a new offensive coordinator for the first time since 2018 when Daboll was hired after being the offensive coordinator for the University of Alabama. The eventual replacement would have high standards to meet after Buffalo has finished near the top of most offensive categories the past two years.

They ultimately decided on promoting Ken Dorsey to be their new offensive coordinator. He previously had been the team’s QB coach for the past three seasons and been a big part of helping develop Josh Allen into one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL.

Buffalo Bills hire Joe Brady as their next quarterback coach

With Dorsey taking over as offensive coordinator, it opened up another spot on the coaching spot as Buffalo looked for their next QB coach. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Bills have that person and will be hiring Joe Brady to take over as QB coach.

Joe Brady at one time was considered an eventual head coaching candidate after an excellent season at LSU in 2019 as the passing game coordinator and wide receiver coach. That season LSU would win the National Championship with Joe Burrow, who would also go on to win the Heisman Trophy that year.

He would join Matt Rhule in Carolina the following season and was his offensive coordinator for almost two seasons before being fired at the beginning of December.

Brady now finds himself in a great spot with Buffalo being the quarterback coach for Josh Allen. However, similar to Dorsey will have big shoes to fill as Ken Dorsey has done a great job in the role the past three years.
