Pegula says dysfunction claims were “insult” in Buffalo News report

NFL Buffalo

Terry Pegula said he thought it was an “insult” media around the control were accusing the Bills of dysfunction in the front office. 

In was one topic covered in an exhaustive interview Pegula and his wife Kim did with the Buffalo News

The story was published Thursday night. 

There wasn’t much new data unearthed, but lots of previously suspected information was confirmed. 

The management structure will remain the same. The head coach and general manager will continue to report separately to ownership. 

Russ Brandon is largely not involved with football operations, but the Bills staff is encouraged to consult across departments when needed or helpful. 

New coach Sean McDermott reportedly landed his first coordinator Thursday night, tabbing Leslie Frazier. 

It will be the fourth time Frazier has been an NFL defensive boss. He was also head coach in Minnesota from 2010-2013, making the playoffs once. 

Last year, Frazier was the secondary coach in Baltimore. 

His style meshes well with McDermott’s.

Both prefer a zone, cover-two secondary. Frazier’s style is very conservative. He wants his defense to keep everything in front of them. Punts are viewed equal to turnovers. 

It appears McDermott will miss out on Mike McCoy as his offensive coordinator. Multiple reports out of Denver Thursday night say McCoy will take over the Broncos’ offense for the second time in his career. 

In addition, former Bills interim coach Anthony Lynn appeared poised to land the Chargers’ head coaching gig. 

The team announced it’s move from San Diego to Los Angeles on Thursday. The Bills will be heading to L.A. for a meeting with the Chargers in 2017.
