Following Monday night’s loss to the Broncos, Bills head coach Sean McDermott expressed uncertainty about making significant changes, but Tuesday morning brought clarity.
The Bills decided to part ways with offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey after weeks of speculation regarding potential changes due to the underwhelming productivity of the offense. McDermott attributed the decision to the team’s lackluster performance, particularly the four turnovers in Monday night’s game. During a Tuesday video conference, McDermott emphasized that he “just felt like this was the right time” to make a change.
While McDermott did not explicitly state whether he believed Dorsey’s offense had become too predictable, he did highlight the need for the offense to rediscover confidence, energy, and consistent production under interim offensive coordinator Joe Brady.
McDermott also acknowledged that quarterback Josh Allen has not reached the desired level of performance and expressed confidence in Allen’s potential to improve under Brady, who previously served as the offensive coordinator before the recent change. The success of this transition will be crucial for the Bills to achieve the level of offensive production McDermott deems essential, as failing to do so could jeopardize McDermott’s own position within the organization.
