Buffalo Bills OC Brian Daboll will stay put this offseason and not pursue head coaching job

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

Great news everyone. Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is going to stick around for the 2021 season. It was reported by both Rob Maadi, Philadelphia’s sports reporter at the Associated Press, and Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. The Philadelphia Eagles and Houston Texans are the only jobs still open, per reports.

Daboll had been very interested in the job with the Los Angeles Chargers, but when general manager Tom Telesco picked Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Brandon Staley, Daboll decided he wasn’t interested in the other two positions.

Both remaining jobs have very large question marks at quarterback and structural concerns within the front office, which could have played a role in Daboll’s reluctance. The Houston Texans are having a very public disagreement with Deshaun Watson over the direction of their franchise while Eagles’ management apparently forced out Super Bowl winner Doug Pederson over his desire to move on from the heavily compensated Carson Wentz.

Under Daboll, the Bills have grown by leaps and bounds on offense as has quarterback Josh Allen. With a trip to the AFC Championship Game in 2020 (and potentially more), the duo will look to continue their upward trajectory in 2021.
