(ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.) — The Buffalo Bills fired head coach Chan Gailey Monday, after leading the Bills to a 16-32 record over three seasons.
Gailey’s entire staff was fired also.
“I want to thank the fans. Great Buffalo fans, a great football town. These are loyal, loyal fans and I understand that. I think that the next staff will have a great opportunity for success and to make this another great football franchise,” Gailey said. “This will probably be, and I say probably, but I think it will be the first place that’s ever fired me that I’ll pull for. Thank you.”
Gailey, who also served as the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys from 1998-99, is coming of his second straight 6-10 season. He had at least one more season left on his contract.
The Bills have now had eight straight losing seasons and have gone 12 seasons without making the playoffs, the longest streak in the NFL.
