The Buffalo Bills have been busy this week with a few coaching changes, including a new defensive backs coach, linebackers coach, as well as a new QB coach. Josh Allen will have his fourth quarterbacks coach since entering the league in 2017. When Ken Dorsey was promoted to the Bills' offensive coordinator position, it left an opening that Joe Brady then stepped into as the new QB coach. We all know what happened after that. Dorsey was let go and Brady became the interim offensive coordinator.

Buffalo went the rest of the season without a QB coach, but Brady was hired as the team's permanent OC and a new QB coach was needed. Enter Ronald Curry, formerly with the Saints. The Bills hired Curry to be Josh Allen's next QB coach. So far two of the previous three QB coaches have gone on to become offensive coordinators. Both Brady and Dorsey, now with the Cleveland Browns have been promoted to the position. Allen's first QB coach, David Culley is the only one who was never an OC; however, he would later become the head coach of the Houston Texans in 2021.

Will Curry continue the latest trend and become an offensive coordinator somewhere? It's entirely possible. If the Bills offense has a great season next year under new OC Joe Brady, he'll likely become a head coaching candidate after the 2024 season. If he is hired away from Buffalo, I'm sure Ronald Curry would be next in line, or at least in strong consideration for the role.

Curry's previous stints include eight seasons with the New Orleans Saints for eight seasons from 2016 until this past season, 2023. Curry held multiple coaching positions with the Saints, including offensive assistant, assistant and full-time wide receivers coach, quarterback coach (three seasons) and offensive pass game coordinator. Before that he got his coaching start with the San Francisco 49ers in 2013, where he remained until joining the Saints staff. With the 49ers he held positions as an offensive assistant and wide receivers coach.

Curry having spent time learning from former head coaches Jim Harbaugh and Sean Payton, as well as spending time with Drew Brees, will allow him to bring a new perspective from some great people in the NFL who have had a ton of success and experience. What he's learned from these people, he'll be able to bestow some of that onto Josh Allen and help take Allen's game to yet another level.
