    Buffalo Bills new asst coaches.....recognize any names

    Tyrone Wheatley among the additions to Bills’ coaching staff

    AP
    New Bills coach Doug Marrone announced 10 additions to his coaching staff today, including four of his former Syracuse assistants who will join him in Buffalo.

    The most recognizable name in the group is that of Tyrone Wheatley, who will serve as the Bills’ running backs coach. Wheatley was a Big Ten player of the year and Rose Bowl MVP at Michigan, a first-round draft pick of the Giants in 1995 and an NFL running back for 10 seasons, including a 1,000-yard season with the Raiders in 2000. Wheatley went into coaching shortly after his playing career ended, and he spent the last three years as the running backs coach at Syracuse.

    Marrone has also brought in Donnie Henderson to coach defensive backs, Greg Adkins to coach tight ends and Jason Rebrovich as defensive quality control coach. They were all on Marrone’s Syracuse staff, as was Nathaniel Hackett, who had previously been hired as the Bills’ new offensive coordinator.

    The Bills also hired three former Jets assistants who had previously worked with new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine: Jim O’Neil (linebackers), Anthony Weaver (defensive line) and Samson Brown (assistant defensive backs).

    Marrone’s other new assistants are Eric Ciano (head strength and conditioning), Chuck Driesbach (linebackers) and Brian Fleury (defensive quality control).

    I have no doubt the Bills are going to be a much better team with Marrone and staff at the helm.


    That being said, I'm optimistic the Jets will improve

    The name I was surprised at is Donnie Henderson. I thought he was out of football altogether.

    I would be more worried if Pettine was able to take our actual assistant coaches, but he took the assistants to our assistant coaches and that is much different.
