Bills Sign Seven; Add Staff

Mike Mularkey - AP Photo Wyche Headed To Buffalo? As we reported on Wednesday, Mike Mularkey is trying to get his old mentor Sam Wyche on his coaching staff as the quarterback coach. Chris Mortensen is reporting on ESPN this morning that the two are nearing an agreement. Wyche gave Mularkey his start in coaching with Tampa Bay. Wyche has been out of coaching the past few years.

Bills Interested In Henson? The Houston Texans own the rights to QB Drew Henson until the April draft. It appears Henson is looking to leave the New York Yankees and begin a career in the NFL. If that happens, the Texans would likely trade his rights. There are many reports that state the Bills are one of the teams interested in his services. The Bills are on record as saying they need to start grooming a young quarterback behind Drew Bledsoe. If they don't make a move on Henson expect them to draft a quarterback in day one of the draft. A player they like is North Carolina St. QB Phillip Rivers.

Levy Honorary Coach: Marv Levy will serve as the honorary AFC head coach at the Pro Bowl in Hawaii next Sunday. Don Schula will be the honorary coach for the NFC. Levy said he's looking forward to going back on the sidelines very much and working with the Colts staff.

Bills Sign Five For Europe: The Bills signed five more free agents today and assigned all of them to NFL Europe. Two of the five we reported in the past week. The Bills made it official that LB Asa Francis joins the team from the AFL2 league the past two years. We also told you that they has signed DB Kahlil Carter. He also comes with AFL2 experience. The other three signees are offensive tackle Jasen Esposito, kicker/punter Mike Shafer, and former Vanderbilt QB Greg Zolman. Shafer punted and kicked for Syracuse University and was with the Rams last preseason. Esposito went to Andre Reeds' alma mater Kutztown University, he was with the Patriots last training camp before being released. Zolman re-wrote the passing record books at Vanderbilt, he was with the Colts in the 2002 preseaon and then spent time on the practice squad of the Packers late in the 2002 season. He was with the Buccaneers practice squad last year after being released by the Rams in training camp. The NFL Europe allocation draft if February 8th, that is when these players will find out who they are playing for. Front Office Page.

Wyche To Buffalo? Mike Mularkey may be trying to lure his former mentor out of retirement. The Buffalo News reports that Mularkey is trying to get former Bengals head coach Sam Wyche to join his staff as the quarterbacks coach. Wyche gave Mularkey his big break when he gave him a coaching job when Wyche was the head coach of the Tampa Bay Bucaneers.

Three Added To Staff: Mike Mularkey continues to round out his coaching staff. He has added Brad Roll as the new strength and conditioning coach, Frank Verducci is the tight ends coach, and Mike Miller was hired as an offensive assistant. Roll spent the last eight years with the Dolphins as their assistant strength and conditioning coach. Miller was with Mularkey in Pittsburgh the past seven seasons, five of them in his current position as an offensive assistant. Verducci wasn't in the league last year but was the offensive line coach with the Cowboys in 2002. He served as the tight ends coach with the Bengals from 1999 to 2001. This brings the grand total of 13 assistants on Mike Mularkey's staff. He still needs a defensive backs coach and possibly a quarterback coach.

Jones Promoted: As we reported earlier, Roll's addition to the staff would not leave Rusty Jones out in the cold. Jones has been promoted to a newly created position of Director of Physical Development. Roll will report directly to Jones who has been with the team since 1985 and is highly respected around the league for his work with nutrition.

Ticket Prices Unchanged: The Bills also announced today that they will not raise ticket prices for the 2004 season. Prices once again will range from $30-$39 for a single game season ticket and $30-$48 for individual game tickets. The average ticket price will be $41 which could rank the them as the third lowest prices in the league.

Roll To Be Added: The Buffalo News is reporting that Brad Roll is expected to join the Bills strength and conditioning staff. He will work with Rusty Jones, who is expected to enter his 20th year as the strength and condtioning coordinator.

Gilbride QB Coach: Kevin Gilbride will be named the QB coach of the Giants. We reported yesterday that he was being hired by his good friend Tom Couglin. Originally, we thought he was going to be the offensive coordinator but it has now been learned that it will be as QB coach. Gilbride was also up for the head coaching job at Cornell University.


Monday January 26, 2003

Bills Hire Receivers Coach: Mike Mularkey hired his ninth assistant on Monday. Tyke Tolbert was named the receivers coach. He spent last year as the receivers coach for the Arizona Cardinals. He is credited with helping of the development of rookie Aquain Bolden.

Gilbride Finds Job: Kevin Gilbride has signed on to become the QB coach with the Giants. He has a past history with Tom Coughlin and chose that job over the head coaching job with Cornell University.

State Of The Bills: After a much needed sabattical, Tony Bogyo returns with a column that gives us the state of the Bills in his unique way. He talks to a "fictional" Bills fan about the future of the team and gets a unique perspective on what's going on with the team. Complete Story.
