Daboll Going Back to NFL

Alabama's Brian Daboll joining Sean McDermott's staff as Bills' OC

4:06 PM C

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills hired Brian Daboll to be their offensive coordinator, the team announced Sunday.

                                                                                                                                                                                Daboll spent last season at Alabama, where he led the Crimson Tide's offense to a national championship. He replaces Rick Dennison, whom the Bills fired last week after one season.

"We are excited to hire Brian as our offensive coordinator and welcome him back to Western New York," Bills coach Sean McDermott said in a statement. "I know how much this area means to him. He is a good coach and a good teacher and has been part of winning programs in the NFL and in college."

Daboll attended St. Francis High School in the Buffalo suburb of Hamburg, New York, and played football at the University of Rochester. He also owns a home in the Buffalo area.

This will be Daboll's fourth stint as an offensive coordinator in the NFL, having previously led the offenses of the Cleveland Browns (2009-10), Miami Dolphins(2011) and Kansas City Chiefs (2012). He had two stints as an assistant coach for the New England Patriots.

Daboll was a restricted-earnings coach for William & Mary in 1997 when McDermott played on that team.

The Bills finished 29th in average yards per game (302.6) and were tied for 24th in offensive points scored (17.6) this season. Buffalo finished with a 9-7 record and lost 10-3 in an AFC wild-card game to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Alabama is a state school so there's retirement there. Have no idea about NFL.

You do know saying offensive things has nothing to do with actually coaching offense right?

After 10 years, coaches qualify for the Alabama teacher's pension fund.

This year when Bama played Georgia there was only one coach on the staff that played Georgia in 2012. It's crazy how strong that is Saban just hires them adds his influence and the process rolls on. Just something else that makes this run so dominate when compared to great coaches in the past. Like scholarship limits and players leaving early coaches in those days were with staffs for years.

I think Saban's ire got him and he saw a chance to jet. The one thing is, he grew up in Buffalo so it may have a lot to do with it too.

Definitely believe it was more of him hopping on an opportunity than Bama looking for change. He never moved his family down here and with so much changeover in the NFL, he was going to be a two year hire at most.

A lot of added excitement this off-season. Two new coordinators incoming,  we better promote Lupoi though, Locksley I'm split on being OC.

The players seem to like Lock and have a lot of respect for him.

It's a pretty crappy situation to start every college football season saying 'maybe, if everything breaks right, our rival won't be national champions again this year'

There is an extremely small margin between a win or loss.  Even given Alabama's talent advantage, we were a couple games away from a 9-3 season. 

It seems to me that the difference boils down to game time coaching... especially the second half adjustment against an inspired rival can make all the difference in the world.  

Maybe that's why Saban speaks so often about his favor team overcoming adversity.

Yep according to some Ttown folks, Hugh Freeze was indeed in Tuscaloosa today. He could end up being an offensive analyst of some sorts or adviser non-staff during the season, but this is very interesting.

      What could a metal detector do to save a kid?

      It’s also a court house where people do their job. That’s all school is. A place kids do their job.    Im not saying that is the idea we should use but twisting it that way is childish. It’s just like a kid to demand the protection and when you give it he doesn’t like it.

      They played a bad game. Should have won 4-0. Walks, errors, wasted opportunities, and the umpiring could have been better.

      Also sounds like a bank. And a jewelry store. And a movie set. And a courthouse. And a sporting event. And a nursing home. And  Congress.
