2024 offensive coordinator is still undecided (for now)

The Bills weren't ready to strip Joe Brady's interim tag on Tuesday afternoon, but that doesn't mean he won't continue calling the Bills offensive plays in 2024.

Brady took over as the Bills offensive play caller after now-former offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey was relieved of his duties following a Week 10 loss against the Denver Broncos. While Brady and the Bills finished the remaining nine games, including the playoffs, with a 7–2 record, Beane made it clear that a formal interviewing process would take place, regardless of whether or not they hired someone from outside the building.

But that didn't stop the Bills from at least giving Brady some much deserved praise.

McDermott pointed out the relationship Brady built with Allen down the stretch, noting that their "collaboration" and "vibe" were critical in finding success.

"I thought Joe did a really nice job coming in and building great communication, collaboration, [and] a vibe with Josh [Allen]. And then I think you saw the results of that through the course [of the season] and so I thought he did a very nice job in that regard."

After fixing the broken Dorsey offense in 2023 by making some much-needed adjustments, Brady deserves a full offseason to install his own playbook and build his own identity. While his bosses weren't able to guarantee his position as offensive coordinator in 2024 quite yet, it's likely that he's the leading candidate heading into this offseason — and for good reason.
