Bills fire offensive coordinator Rick Dennison

Bills fire offensive coordinator Rick Dennison

Buffalo finished with a 9-7 record and lost 10-3 in an AFC wild-card game to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Dennison joined the Bills last January after McDermott replaced Rex Ryan as coach.

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

The team announced the move on Friday after the Bills finished 29th in offense.

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).

Now the real work begins for general manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott.

McDermott was non-committal when discussing potential coaching staff changes during the season-ending news conference on Tuesday. He also said the Bills are "still in the process of getting that accomplished".

"It'll be a collaborative deal, [but] at the end of the day, it'll be my decision to make", Beane said. The Buffalo Bills have fired offensive coordinator Rick Dennison.

While the Bills gained just 263 total yards in the playoff game against the Jags, they were particularly chastised for the run-pass option called on first-and-goal from the Jacksonville 1-yard line in the second quarter. "That's probably one of them", McDermott said after the game. Two names might rise to the top of the list - former Chargers head coach Mike McCoy and former Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Mike Shula.

Dennison served as offensive coordinator with the Denver Broncos (2006-08, 2015-16) and with the Houston Texans (2010-13). Incumbent starter Tyrod Taylor has one year left on his contract, but could be cut loose this offseason.
