BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The day after a 37-31 loss to the New York Jets dropped the Buffalo Bills to 0-2 to start the 2016 season, the team announced Friday it has fired offensive coordinator Greg Roman after just more than one season on the job.
Roman’s replacement is Bills running backs coach Anthony Lynn, a longtime assistant under Rex Ryan. He has previously served as a running backs coach for four NFL teams, including the Jets. He joined the Bills in 2015.
Roman also arrived in Buffalo in 2015 and promptly elevated a struggling offense from 26th in the NFL to 13th, all while nurturing a first-year starting quarterback in Tyrod Taylor. The Bills struggled out the gate in 2016, scoring just seven points in a loss at Baltimore, before managing a respectable 24 points against a talented Jets defense. The Bills’ defense allowed 37 points in the loss.
The Bills have a long week to figure things out before hosting the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
