Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator announces break
The Buffalo Bills’ defense had one of their worst performances at home in the snow in the Divisional Round against the Cincinnati Bengals. The team made a few changes to the defensive staff following the loss. The Bills kept on defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier for next season. But he won’t be coaching in Buffalo next season.
According to Adam Schefter with ESPN, Frazier will take one year off from coaching during the 2023 season. Frazier plans to coach again for the 2024 season.
The Bills named Austin Gunt as their offensive assistant/offensive line coach. Adam Henry was named as their wide receivers coach. Al Holcomb will be the Bills’ next Senior defensive assistant. Kyle Shurmur was named as the Bills’ offensive quality control coach.
The Bills’ defense gave up the fourth least yards per game and eighth least points in 2022. But the results in the postseason put extra pressure on the coaching staff this season. The Bills expect to be in contention for the Super Bowl with quarterback Josh Allen leading the team. Frazier was considered a top candidate for NFL head coaching jobs last offseason.
