Default Bills fire Williams

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Gregg Williams is out as the Buffalo Bills' coach after missing the playoffs in three straight seasons.


In a meeting Monday afternoon, team president Tom Donahoe told Williams his contract won't be renewed. The Bills later announced the move.


Williams went 17-31, never finishing a season above .500. The Bills were 6-10 this season, which ended with a 31-0 loss at New England on Saturday.


"We weren't able to do as well as I thought this year, but Tom has put the team in the right position," Williams said. "I'm sorry I wasn't able to take it to the next level."


He wouldn't respond to reporters' questions. The status of the rest of the Bills' staff will be reviewed on a coach-by-coach basis by the new head coach.


Williams turned down a contract extension last spring. The former Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator became the Bills' head coach in February 2001, replacing Wade Phillips.


After a 3-13 rookie season, Williams led the Bills to an 8-8 mark last season.


But Williams' inability to develop an improved roster into a playoff contender played a part in the team's decision. The Bills played below Donahoe's expectations this season, after bolstering the defense with free-agent additions such as linebacker Takeo Spikes, tackle Sam Adams and safety Lawyer Milloy.


"We have regressed, and I didn't have confidence we could turn that around," Donahoe said.


Buffalo opened this year with two straight victories -- including a 31-0 rout of New England in Week 1.


But the Bills unraveled down the stretch, losing seven of their last nine games, including their last two by a combined 51-3.


Williams' play-calling was second-guessed, and he and offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride drew criticism for a sputtering offense.


By the end of this season, several players -- including cornerback Antoine Winfield and running back Travis Henry -- publicly questioned the pass-first offensive philosophy.


And now the Bills join the Giants, Falcons, Bears and Cardinals in searching for a new head coach.


Among those considered candidates to replace Williams are Jim Fassel, who was fired by the Giants, and Tom Coughlin, out of the NFL for a year after being dismissed by the Jaguars.

I was a bit shocked at this firing, but think it was for the best. Sad thing is moulds was out for some significant time, and travis henry busted his balls all season long so you can't blame him. Bledsoe just didn't have the greatest protection on the field and that's one thing that the bills must address this offseason. Henry, Moulds, Bledsoe can light it up, but they need that perfection. Sucks for williams who didn't deserve this firing.

I wasn't shocked at all he was fired. And I think it was the right move. If you look at this team on paper they should be right up there. True that Moulds was out for a bit. But with the team they have, even without Moulds for alot of games, they should still be able to win more games.

Williams firing was like Reeves, all because of injuries and not justified.

I don't think so. The Bills aren't a one man team.

^^^T.J Duckett??? LMFAO that guy has about 3 good runs a year, Falcons are a one man team, sorry when you say Falcons, you think right about Micheal Vick right away.

Good stuff on firing Greg, he was a crappy coach, he has a powerhouse defense and doesn't know on how to use them, they have so many big name players, they usually do a good job with the opposing offense.

You know all they need is a Kyle Boller/ Byron Leftwhich QB and they're going to be fine next season, oh and obviously a good Head Coach

You didn't hear Price's name all season. And Duckett? He just started to come alive at the last half of this season. If those players were that good then tell me why they couldn't get out of the basement in their divison?

They had no back up qb for vick for one, and i don't care how bad/good you are. Would the packers have won games with favre out this year?
