Bills fire Dick Jauron

The Buffalo Bills fired head coach Dick Jauron on Tuesday after a 3-6 start in which the offense has been one of the worst in the NFL.

Jauron was 24-33 since being hired by former general manager Marv Levy in 2006 to be head coach. He has two years remaining on his contract that will pay him a total of $6 million in 2009 and 2010.

"I really don't have anything to say," was all Jauron would say when reached on his cell phone by The Associated Press.

Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell was named interim head coach on Tuesday afternoon, becoming the team's first black head coach. Fewell, who's never been a head coach at any level, will make his debut on Sunday when the Bills travel to play Jacksonville.

"I am announcing today that I am relieving Dick Jauron from his duties as our head coach, effective immediately," Bills owner Ralph Wilson said. "I have tremendous respect for Dick and thank him for all of his efforts during these past four years. While this was a very difficult decision, I felt that it is one that needed to be made at this time for the best interest of our team. We will now focus on moving forward and preparing for our game this week in Jacksonville."


Can't say the writing hasn't been on the wall. Now let's start the countdown to ESPN blaming it on TO.

He was doomed from birth with the name Dick.

:roll: but seriously I don't think Jauron was really the problem..their offense really is terrible (GM's fault for giving them a rookie offensive line and a mediocre QB) and Jauron certainly hasn't had much to work with. He still had to get fired though because he has only been average..and when you only be average as a HC in the NFL for 3 to 4 years chances are you'll get shown the door.

Don't say they really didn't had weapons. Lynch/Jackson/T.O/Evans is a decent set of players to build that O around.

Still, crap o-line and crap QB nullifies to skill players to a big degree.

Exactly, you can't really make it work with such an inexperienced offensive line and a below average QB. Buffalo needs to ditch Trent Edwards, fast, btw. I think everyone would agree with me on that.
