Buffalo Bills Hire New Defensive Coach


The Buffalo Bills continue to bring in personnel to help lead a resurgent defense that was at the top of the league in sacks and interceptions in 2013.

The team has announced that Jason Rebrovich has been named Buffalo’s assistant defensive line coach. Rebrovich spent last season as a defensive quality control coach with the Bills. He will now work closely with new Bills defensive line coach Pepper Johnson, who came over from the New England Patriots last week.

A native of the Buffalo suburb Clarence, Rebrovich spent two seasons at Syracuse University under now Bills head coach Doug Marrone in 2011 and 2012. He was the defensive coordinator at Cortland State University from 2008-10.

After Mike Pettine left the Bills coaching staff last month to become the new head coach of the Cleveland Browns, Buffalo has added the likes of former Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz (Defensive Coordinator), Fred Pagac (linebackers) from the Minnesota Vikings and the aforementioned Johnson from New England.

The Bills clearly feel they are heading in the right direction with the coaching staff they have in place, and hopes of ending the longest active NFL playoff drought of 14 years are certainly going to be high heading into the 2014 season.
