Should the Buffalo Bills make any voluntary changes to their coaching staff?

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

The Buffalo Bills went on a great run in 2020, winning 13 regular-season games and two playoff games before falling to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. Obviously, some things went very right this year.

So what voluntary changes should the team make to the coaching staff, if any?

We’re going to list out the coaching staff below and you can have at it in the comments.

Personally, I’m not advocating for anything to change. If they wanted to shake up what happens at the defensive line position, I’m okay with that, but Eric Washington is well-respected and the Bills had Star Loutlelei opt out this year and a limited offseason to bring along their top draft choice, A.J. Epenesa. The d-line certainly underperformed based on the amount of money they spent there. Elsewhere on the roster, most players advanced pretty well.

Last year, the Bills added a nickel coach and a game management coach to their litany of staff as well as promoting defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier to assistant head coach. They promoted Ryan Wendell to assistant offensive line coach and Shea Tierney to assistant quarterback coach. Offensive assistant Marc Lubick was promoted to assistant wide receivers coach. Defensive assistant Jimmy Salgado was promoted to nickel coach.
