Report: Buffalo Bills Make Intriguing Coaching Hire
The Buffalo Bills are likely preparing lists for NFL prospect rankings, pending free agent rankings/targets, along with player evaluations on who they could release to save money against the salary cap (plus restructured contracts).
Until then, however, the Bills are still finalizing their 2024 coaching staff.
The Bills decided to retain Joe Brady as the permanent offensive coordinator. He went 7-2 in games after taking over for former OC Ken Dorsey, with the only two losses being the devastating loss in Philadelphia and in the AFC Divisional round vs. Kansas City.
The Bills also promoted linebackers coach Bobby Babich to defensive coordinator. He's been on Sean McDermott's staff since the start in Buffalo (2017).
Now, it appears the Bills have added another coach to the offensive side of the ball.
NFL reporter Aaron Wilson says that Ronald Curry will join the Bills staff. He's been the New Orleans Saints quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator the last few seasons and wide receivers coach before that.
It's presumably a lateral move and he will become the Bills' QB coach and passing game coordinator in Buffalo.
Curry is former NFL wide receiver, playing seven seasons for the Oakland Raiders from 2002-2008. He played quarterback at North Carolina but made the switch to wide receiver when he was drafted by the Raiders in the 2002 NFL Draft.
Curry is a very interesting hire and in a good way. He has experience as both a quarterback and wide receiver at a high level of football. That could prove crucial for this offense, with a hopefully more explosive offense.
This could also be a better path to being an OC for Curry after the 2024 season, working with Josh Allen.
