Wonder what his position will be, as well as responsibilities and assignments.

silly question.  the thread is still young.

Why "wow?"  You never have struck me as just a wow type of responder, you have good insights and knowledge/viewpoints.  C'mon, give us more.

Former Patriots assistant coach Pepper Johnson has joined the Bills coaching staff, @MikeReiss confirms. (as @coachingsearch first reported)

Mike Rodak@mikerodak  1m
Pepper Johnson has experience as both a DL and LB coach. Bills do not currently have LB coach, and DL coach Anthony Weaver could join CLE.

Hopefully this means good things. Still a little concerned that he didn't climb the ladder very far in NE, but NE's track record at the positions he's coached has been strong.

Jim Schwartz comes from Belichick coaching tree. Bills’ first coaching hire taps into that tree, providing new dynamic within AFC East.

This is strange. A position coach leaves New England in search of, in his words, a better opportunity. Then he signs on with Buffalo? Am I tripping on acid?

Respect the falling sky! Marrone and his cronies... same old Bills.

LOL - I was looking at Houston's staff on wikipedia the other day because I wanted to see if PJ was on it... I had heard he probably was leaving NE because he was PO'd he hadn't been promoted after all that time and to join his buddies Romeo, Vrabel, O'Brien, etc in Houston. He was actually listed as Houston's ILB Coach and I thought it was strange because I never heard it announced.

I'm waiting for the Schefter tweets before Iet myself believe it. Time to win this division. He knows how.

I love how bandit27 was claiming in the shoutbox a week or two ago that his "sources"  said that he was going to the texans and I quote something along the lines  it's a done deal, it's just not official yet.

BTW, surprising and an excellent hire by the Bills front office. I'm impressed with this one.

OK, but maybe some people are in the line that I am with their thoughts.  He wanted to move on from NE who is just evil to their staff.  In so many years there has been no successful assistants to come from NE and teams were taking passes on Johnson because of past events.

I do not know if this is a Wow hire for the bad or the good.  It's just a hire at this point, at least in my opinion
