Buffalo Bills To Hire Pete Metzelaars To Coach Tight Ends, Per Steve Tasker

The Buffalo Bills still have one vacancy on their coaching staff, and if former star special teamer Steve Tasker is to be believed, they're on the verge of hiring the best tight end in franchise history to coach the position. That's right, folks: Tasker tweets that Pete Metzelaars is set to join Chan Gailey's coaching staff, even though Tasker does not refer to Metzelaars by name (instead going with "former roomy of mine").

Metzelaars played in the NFL for 16 seasons, including spending his prime in Buffalo, where he spent a full decade. In those 10 seasons, Metzelaars became a favorite target of Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, catching 302 passes for 2,921 yards and 25 touchdowns. He also spent time with Seattle, Carolina and Detroit.

Metzelaars has spent the past eight seasons as a coach with the Indianapolis Colts, where he started as a quality control coach and ended tutoring the team's offensive line. If Tasker is correct, and Metzelaars gets the job, he'll make his return to Buffalo coaching the position he still defines in the minds of Bills fans everywhere.
