The Bills announced Wednesday the hiring of five new assistant coaches and the retaining of two coaches from last year.
Curtis Modkins has been hired as offensive coordinator/running backs coach, Bob Bicknell as tight ends coach, Joe D'Alessandris as offensive line coach, Kevin Patullo as offensive quality control and Giff Smith as a defensive assistant. George Catavolos will remain as the secondary coach and Bob Sanders will continue to serve on the defensive staff.
"Right now we are happy with the coaches that we have been able to get on the staff," head coach Chan Gailey said. "Ultimately, we want to make sure we get the right guys; great teachers, great communicators and the right kind of people for the Bills. These coaches give us a great start in that direction."
