Jauron out as Bills coach


Peace out, Dick Jauron

In a move that came about three years too late, the Buffalo Bills announced the firing of head coach Dick Jauron today in the midst of a 3-6 season and on the heals of a 41-17 loss to Tennessee Sunday. Jauron came on as coach of the Bills three years ago.

In each of his three full seasons in Buffalo, Jauron led the Bills to identical 7-9 marks, including one in 2008 after a 5-1 start to the season. Even with the off-season addition of Terrell Owens, Buffalo’s offense this year has been arguably the worst in the history of professional sports. Jauron fired offensive coordinator Turk Schonert nine days before the regular season got underway.

Jauron, whose contract still has two years and $6 million remaining, will be replaced in the interim by defensive coordinator Perry Fewell.

  1. Well, they did lose to Cleveland.

  2. …and that enough is grounds for firing.
