Bills fire offensive coordinator Rick Dennison after playoff loss

The Buffalo Bills have fired offensive coordinator Rick Dennison.

The Buffalo Bills have fired offensive coordinator Rick Dennison after just one season, the team formally announced on Friday. In the AFC wild card game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, he called for a fade pass on first-and-goal from the 1-yard-line.

Buffalo's offense topped 300 yards just nine times in 17 games and scored only eight touchdowns in its final seven games.

McCoy was sacked from the Broncos midseason after returning to the team for a second stint (where, coincidentally, he replaced Dennison as coordinator in 2009).

McCoy is expected to be a candidate to join McDermott's staff in Buffalo. There are some early candidates, including former Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and Alabama offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, who has western NY ties.

Campbell suggested that the Bills players were coached to do that, something Bills coach Sean McDermott called "unfortunate" on Tuesday and then followed up on during an appearance on WGR Radio. He also said the Bills are "still in the process of getting that accomplished". Averaging 176.6 passing yards per game, the Bills were second-to-last in that category, but thanks largely to stud running back LeSean McCoy, they were sixth in rushing offense at 126.1 yards per game. He was replaced in Denver by McCoy after coach Gary Kubiak retired.

The decision also raised questions about the future of quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who has one year left on his contract. "In fact, the real honest truth was what we coached that week was to be poised", said McDermott.

The quarterback change backfired after Peterman threw five interceptions in the first half of a 54-24 loss.
