OC Dennison fired after running game falls from first to sixth
BUFFALO, N.Y. >> Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison was fired after the team finished 29th in offense this season and saw its running attack fall to sixth after leading the league the past two seasons.
Buffalo’s offense topped 300 yards just nine times in 17 games and scored only eight touchdowns in its final seven games. Dennison’s play-calling was questioned after Buffalo scored just three points against Jacksonville in last week’s playoff game.
Dennison wasn’t coach Sean McDermott’s first choice last offseason — that was former San Diego Chargers coach Mike McCoy. But McCoy took the Green Bay Packers’ offensive coordinator job and was fired midseason. McCoy is expected to join McDermott.
