It just goes to show that nice guys finish last or at least not first. Dick Jauron’s run with the Buffalo Bills came to an end today as he was let go after a 3-6 start. In four seasons with the Bills, Jauron led to the Bills to a 24-33 record. The Bills haven’t been to the playoffs since 1999, the longest streak for a non-expansion team.
Bears fans will remember the stone-faced Jauron from his days in Chicago. Nice guy. Solid guy. Just not the guy to take your team to the Super Bowl. Or the playoffs. Here’s what Jay Glazer had to say about the firing:
Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell has been named interim head coach.
Now if only the Bears would wise up and provide Dick with some company in the head coaching unemployment line.
