Bills hire Alabama's Daboll to be offensive coordinator

Posted: Updated:

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The Buffalo Bills have hired Alabama assistant coach Brian Daboll as their offensive coordinator.
    
Coach Sean McDermott announced Daboll's hiring Sunday, two days after firing Rick Dennison.
    
Daboll, 42, was most recently the offensive coordinator for national champion Alabama. It was the sixth time he was part of a national title-winning team's coaching staff.
    
Before joining the Crimson Tide last season, Daboll was the tight ends coach for Super Bowl-champion New England. He has 17 seasons of NFL coaching experience, including stints as the offensive coordinator for Cleveland, (2009-10), Miami (2011) and Kansas City (2012).
    
Daboll has previous ties to McDermott, serving as an assistant at William & Mary when McDermott was a senior safety in 1997. Daboll also has western New York roots, having graduated from St. Francis High School in Athol Springs, a few miles from the Bills' facility.
