The Buffalo Bills find themselves in what could be the game of the year on Sunday afternoon as they take on the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC’s Divisional Round.
But, the later we get in the season, the more we’re going to hear about possible coaching exits. Despite the Bills still being in it, their coaching staff can interview for other jobs if they so choose.
It’s already been reported that Bills offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey might end up leaving for the Carolina Panthers head coaching gig. Dorsey interviewed this weekend, before shifting his focus to the Bengals.
Now, another report has come out about a second Bills coach who could find a new home following this postseason. Quarterbacks coach Joe Brady is now being eyed by the New York Jets for their vacant offensive coordinator position.
Bills QB coach Joe Brady deserves another shot as an NFL offensive coordinator
Brady’s time in Carolina could have been overshadowed by just how bad Matt Rhule was as an NFL head coach. Sure, Brady was the offensive coordinator. But, it was Rhule’s scheme and offense he was running.
Now in Buffalo, of course, Brady has had the opportunity to learn from a more sound professional football mind like Dorsey, who was mentored by now-Giants head coach Brian Daboll. With the experience he’s had under Dorsey and being around one of the top offenses in the NFL, Brady is a great candidate to go to New York and help raise the level of competition on that offense.
The one intriguing part of a job in New York, for Brady, could be the potential of working with either a veteran like Jimmy Garoppolo or maybe another young quarterback in the near future, should the Jets go that route.
For today, his focus is solely on the AFC Divisional Round. But, it may not be long before Brady heads out of town.
