Bills name Ciano, Gamble co-strength coordinators

The Buffalo Bills have announced the hires of Eric Ciano and John Gamble as co-strength and conditioning coordinators.

Per the team's statement, Ciano and Gamble will each specialize in his own area of the program. Gamble has spent the last 16 seasons with the Miami Dolphins with various titles, including the last four as the team's Director of Player Development. A member of the Weightlifting Hall of Fame, Gamble will conceivably focus on the strength aspect of the program. Gamble worked with Gailey during Gailey's brief stint as Miami's offensive coordinator.

Ciano worked with head coach Chan Gailey at Georgia Tech, where his title, like Gamble's, was Director of Player Development. With Gamble likely focusing on the strength aspect of the program, Ciano could work on conditioning and, hopefully, injury prevention.

Injury a prevention has obviously been a huge issue in Buffalo, as the team's conveyor belt toward Injured Reserve has been worn thin over the past three seasons. These hires will be somewhat under the radar, but these two men have their work cut out for them simply in trying to diagnose an underlying cause to the massive amount of injuries the team has incurred.
