Bills firing Rick Dennison is start of offseason makeover on offense

The Buffalo Bills fired offensive coordinator Rick Dennison after just one season, the team announced Friday. They ranked 29th in the league in total yards (302.6 yards per game) and 22nd in scoring (18.9 points per game), while averaging an abysmal 176.6 passing yards per game.

Dennison wasn't coach Sean McDermott's first choice for the job last offseason - that was former San Diego Chargers coach Mike McCoy. He also was hired to coach the quarterbacks for the Baltimore Ravens in 2014. "Sean and I will talk things out, and we talk out a lot of things". "We are aligned philosophically on how we believe it should look and how we believe the building process should basically take shape". Dennison's background was mostly in coaching the offensive line, while current quarterbacks coach David Culley had a background in coaching wide receivers, not quarterbacks.

Prior to the Bills meeting the Panthers in Week 2 this season, McDermott said, "Mike Shula does an incredible job of moving pieces around" and called the Panthers a "very dynamic offense". The recently fired coordinator was with the Denver Broncos in the same role prior to landing with the Bills. Buffalo finished the regular season a shade above.500 at 9-7 but was bounced in the wild card round, 10-3, to the Jaguars.

The quarterback change backfired after Peterman threw five interceptions in the first half of a 54-24 loss.
