Buffalo Bills Courting David Lee For Coaching Staff, Per Report

New, comments

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Buffalo Bills are one of two teams courting David Lee for vacancies on their coaching staff.

Lee spent 2011 as the offensive coordinator at Ole Miss, and was most recently in the NFL as the quarterbacks coach of the Miami Dolphins for three seasons. There, he was widely credited for introducing the "Wildcat" offense to the NFL, a look that he picked up at Arkansas.

Buffalo is looking for a new quarterbacks coach after George Cortez departed to become head coach of the CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats. That's the role Lee would fill in Buffalo. The other team courting Lee? The New York Jets, who just this week hired former Dolphins coach Tony Sparano to run their offense. Lee coached with Sparano for three years in Miami, and the duo also spent four years together as assistants with the Dallas Cowboys.

Clearly, the Jets have an in with Lee that the Bills don't. Chan Gailey is aiming pretty high in trying to fill out his coaching staff, however.
