- fired Polian despite building the only successful team in buffalo bills history
- forced wade phillips to fire his ST coach - BTW, wade was the last coach with a winning record here
- forced wade to start rob johnson over flutie, subsequently losing the music city miracle which was ironically the last playoff game buffalo was in.
How bout this one? Mike Mularkey
Can anyone else name one single NFL coach that has willingfully resigned from a HC position? I started looking in to this and as astonishing as it may be, it really isn't. We wonder why the Buffalo Bills are the laughing stock of the NFL.
Sources said that, while family considerations played a large role in Mularkey's decision, his views on the future of the franchise were also a significant factor. Since the end to a dismal season, the Buffalo organization has undergone a quick overhaul, and people in the NFL have questioned the Bills' direction.
A source close to Mularkey told ESPN.com's John Clayton the primary reason for Mularkey's resignation was professional. According to the source, Mularkey didn't think the way the Bills were being set up would create an environment in which he could be successful.
Wilson fired team president/general manager Tom Donahoe; re-hired Levy, the Hall of Fame coach who led the Bills to four Super Bowl appearances; and made other changes to the front office. It is believed that Wilson also suggested, but did not mandate, changes in the coaching staff. Mularkey subsequently dismissed five assistants.
On January 12, 2006, Mularkey resigned as head coach of the Bills, citing a disagreement in the direction of the organization, which had recently hired new management including ex-coach Marv Levy.
Just another example of this pathetic organization giving itself a bad name. remember when russ brandon met with bill cowher and shannahan, only to settle for chan gailey LOL!
this entire franchise reeks of losing and it starts at the top. no accountability except making the inner circle money and pulling the sheep skin over the fans eyes.
