Wannstedt to join Bills staff next year?




Last night I was speaking to a family member, who has a relative on his other side, and was the tight ends coach for the University of Pittsburgh (not sure how long he had been on staff). Dave Wannstedt and his entire staff have been released from their contracts and Pitt hired Michael Haywood from Miami (OH).

Anyways, my cousin told me that his relative has been in contact with people on the Bills' staff and could be joining them next season. He also said that Wannstedt could be headed there. Very interesting. If there is any truth to this, what would Wannstedt's role be? Is George Edwards in trouble and Wannstedt becomes D-coordinator? Or maybe DeMontie Cross is let go as ILB coach since he was a Jauron holdover. Wannstedt could have an assistant head coach/position coach role. If Wannstedt is given a lot of control over the defense, do we return to the 4-3 with a Jimmy Johnson style?

The 90's Dallas/Miami connections are there on the staff. Obviously Gailey was Dallas HC for two years and offensive coordinator for the 'phins in 2000-01. Edwards began his NFL coaching career in Dallas (and coached in Cleveland under Butch Davis, another Jimmy Johnson disciple). Bob Sanders coached under Wannstedt with the Dolphins from 2001-04.

Again, this is just the type of talk that always comes around this time of year, but very interesting.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
