Buffalo Bills Coach Sean McDermott took just two days to hire a new Offensive Coordinator hiring Alabama OC Brian DaBoll. DaBoll is a former St. Francis high school football player and has experience coaching in the NFL in the past, serving his previous four years with the New England Patriots as an assistant before taking the job at Alabama. He has also served as an offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs (2012), Miami Dolphins (2011) and Cleveland Browns (2009-10).

McDermott is also acquainted with DaBoll  from his days at William & Mary. McDermott was a senior safety at W&M when Daboll was a restricted earnings coach on the William & Mary staff in 1997. “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.”

Bama coach Nick Saban also had high praise for DaBoll. ““Brian did a tremendous job for us this past season at Alabama, and I know he will do a great job for the Buffalo Bills”, Saban said in a statement. “He is an outstanding coach and coordinator who put us in position to be successful each week. We appreciate all that he did in terms of his time and his dedication in contributing to the success we had this season. We wish Brian, his wife Beth, and their entire family all the best.”
