Bills make DeHaven, Cortez hires official

New, comments

The Buffalo Bills on Monday morning confirmed, via announcement, reports over the weekend that the team has hired Bruce DeHaven as its special teams coordinator and George Cortez as its quarterbacks coach. The team also announced that Stan Hixon will be the team's wide receivers coach, and that Adrian White - a defensive quality control assistant under Dick Jauron - will be retained as well.

Cortez comes to Buffalo via the CFL and the collegiate ranks, where he's coached prominent names such as Kyle Boller, Aaron Rodgers and Jeff Garcia. DeHaven returns to Buffalo a decade after he wrapped up a 13-year stay with the club with the infamous Music City Miracle play. He has since spent time in San Francisco, Dallas and Seattle.

Hixon spent the last six seasons coaching receivers in Washington, and has 30 years of coaching experience, with 24 of those coming at the collegiate level. White has been with the Bills for the past two seasons as defensive quality control coach; according to BuffaloBills.com, he's also assisted George Catavolos with the defensive backs. He does not yet have an official title.

The Bills still have a major opening at defensive coordinator to fill.
