New Bills coach man of few words — un­like Ryan

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS - By John Wawrow

Buf­falo Bills new coach Sean McDer­mott ush­ered in the post-Rex Ryan era by mak­ing no bold prom­ises in his vi­sion to re­store rel­e­vance to a fran­chise in the midst of a 17-year play­off drought.

McDer­mott was short and to the point dur­ing his in­au­gu­ral news con­fer­ence on Fri­day. The 42-year-old first-time head coach said he’s fa­mil­iar with the chal­lenges of re­build­ing de­fenses, and is lean­ing on his 18 years of NFL ex­pe­ri­ence, which in­clude two Su­per Bowl losses as an as­sis­tant. The first step is rein­vig­o­rat­ing a win­ning cul­ture on a team that has en­joyed just two win­ning sea­sons since last reach­ing the play­offs in 1999.
