Coles could be back in Bills mix… again

  • Posted on January 21, 2010 at 9:55 pm

About a year ago the Buffalo Bills were attracted to then-free agent wide receiver Laveranues Coles. The former New York Jet visited Buffalo last March and the Bills were ponied up a contract offer. The sides couldn’t agree on terms and ultimately Coles inked a four-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals on March 4.

Twelve months later the Bills and Coles may cross paths again.  Buffalo is very likely to be in the market for a number two receiver and according to a Cincinnati beat writer, Coles is likely to be looking for employment.

Coles still has three years remaining on the four-year, $27.5-million contract he signed a year ago, but he’s not likely to see the final three years.  The Bengals are expected to promote Andre Caldwell to starter and with Coles scheduled to make $4.65 million in 2010, he’s expected to be a high salary victim.

Reports: Reeves interested in joining Bills

  • Posted on January 21, 2010 at 9:53 pm

According to several media outlets, former long-time head coach Dan Reeves is interested in joining Chan Gailey and his staff with the Buffalo Bills.

Reeves has been out of coaching for the past six years but has a long and largely successful coaching career, including leading the Denver Broncos to the Super Bowl three time and Atlanta once.

“He hasn’t reached out to me,” Reeves said to WIVB-TV, “but I coached him in Little League and he might give me a chance. He might come back and try to see if I could help him out.”

Reeves, 66, could potentially come to Gailey’s staff in an offensive coordinator role.  Despite Gailey saying at his press conference that he intended on calling the plays, bringing in Reeves with the coordinator title as well as assistant head coach would seem like a logical move.

Buffalo head coach Jeff Quinn announced today that sophomore quarterback Zach Maynard has left the Buffalo football program.

UB has just released a single paragraph statement on the developing matter.

In line with our “Next Bull In” philosophy, we will not let this deter us from our goal of playing for championships.”

Nix gives John Guy the boot

  • Posted on January 21, 2010 at 8:22 am

Maybe the Buffalo Bills really are trying to change their losing ways.

General Manager Buddy Nix dropped the hammer earlier this month on the entire coaching staff.  Wednesday it was dropped on John Guy.  The Bills main pro personnel guy was relieved of his duties by Nix, ending a run of him being with the team since 2001.  He’s been the team’s chief pro scout since being brought in by Tom Donahoe in 01’ and was given the title of vice president of pro personnel in 2008.

His contract was set to expire in May but Nix decided to not wait that long.

Guy was given the prime responsibility of evaluating free agents but didn’t have anything to do with their contracts.  His role is expected to be filled quickly in advance of free agency beginning in March.

Bulls blown out at Kent State

  • Posted on January 21, 2010 at 8:07 am

The University at Buffalo men’s basketball team ran into a bad combination on Wednesday night as the Bulls not only struggled from the field, but faced a Kent State squad who could not miss in the second half as the Golden Flashes won the contest, 89-54. The loss drops UB’s record to 10-5 and 3-1 in the MAC.

Both teams struggled to find their shooting touch in the first half as the two teams combined for just 17 points over the first seven minutes of action. The Golden Flashes would lead by nine in the opening half, but the Bulls cut it to two on back-to-back fast break buckets from Calvin Betts. Kent State would respond by ending the half on an 8-0 run to go into the break up 10.
