It figures this news would break THE EXACT SECOND I hop in my car for my 45-minute commute from Rochester to my residence. Them's the breaks.
The Buffalo News is reporting that Ralph Wilson has decided to retain head coach Dick Jauron. The embattled head coach will roam the sidelines in Buffalo for a fourth season in 2009.
Wilson's entire statement:
It is well known that I share many of the fans' dissatisfaction with our offensive game management. That being said, I believe that this team, at this time, is better served by coninuity in the coaching staff rather than a disruptive overhaul. The team played hard all year long and there are many positives to build on. This is not to say that we will be complacent. in my discussions with Dick and our senior football people the issues are recognized and I am confident they will be addressed.
I believe in the last few years we have gotten close personnel wise and look forward to another strong draft, more assertive veteran leadership and continued improvement from our young quarterback.
I'm going to need a night or so to digest this. Much more opinion from me on the subject when I can. In the meantime, keep it clean, folks. Disappointing day in Bills Nation to say the least.
