#Bills relieve ILBs coach Chuck Dreisbach of his duties. 2nd coach moved off Marrone's staff since season's end.



And yet Crossman is retained

It turned out this was Chuck Lester in disguise.

Bring in someone who understands how to coach gap control.....also need a stout and disciplined run defender to pair with Kiko on first and second downs to allow Kiko to create even more plays.  Someone has to stay home and fill holes while Kiko runs around like his hair is on fire...

Honestly, with all the new faces on the Bills (players and coaches), I didn't even know the name of our linebackers coach. All I can do is hope that it becomes a good move on Marrone's part by letting him go.

I do agree with JoeF. We need the linebackers to control the gap better.

Don't lose sleep over it. It's like a man on death row. He can't act shocked if his day of execution comes. We knew Crossman and Hackett were very close friends of Marrone going into the season. Crossman and Hackett are here to stay my friend.

Guess he is the fall guy for the run defense and the bad fills we saw quite a few times

My guess would be "philosophical differences".

My guess it would be that and allowing 20 yard runs in quantities that would embarrass a high school team....

Do you want accountability, or don't you?

Maybe he is being asked to be on the staff of one of the new hires and asked to be released so he can pursue that....

Yes, but we are getting "selective" accountability...our special teams coach is still employed due to cronyism

I also considered that. We'll see if he gets snatched up elsewhere. I think it's unlikely, though.

I see. So until Crossman's fired, nothing else matters. I wouldn't hold your breath.

He came over from Syracuse with Marrone.  Pettine also brough at LB coach with him from the Jets.  I'm guessing Pettine's guy is getting the better title.

My guess is that he was not a "Pettine guy".

This is normal IMO for a first year coaching staff - you bring a bunch of alpha male coaches together for the first time some of them get along and others not so much.
