Bills fire offensive coordinator after ‘Monday Night Football’ loss

The Buffalo Bills are making a drastic in-season change to spark their disappointing offense.

The Bills fired offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey on Tuesday, less than 24 hours after a 24-22 loss to the Denver Broncos on ‘Monday Night Football’ dropped Buffalo to 5-5.

While Bills quarterback Josh Allen leads the NFL with 19 touchdown passes this season, he also has a league-worst 11 interceptions and 13 turnovers. Allen also tied for the NFL lead with 17 interceptions last season. He had two interceptions and a fumble in the loss to the Broncos, which featured four Bills turnovers in all.

Since Allen entered the league in 2018, no QB has more turnovers (94) than the two-time Pro Bowl selection.

While the Bills rank seventh in yards per game (370.1) and eighth in points per game (26.2), the offense has not produced more than 25 points in its last six contests, a stretch in which the team has gone 2-4.

Dorsey, who took over as the Bills’ offensive coordinator in 2022 after Brian Daboll was named coach of the New York Giants, was considered a potential head-coaching candidate entering the season. He interviewed for the Carolina Panthers’ coaching vacancy this past offseason.

Joe Brady, who was passing game coordinator and receivers coach at LSU during Joe Burrow’s national title run in 2019, will take over as Buffalo’s interim offensive coordinator for the rest of the season.

Brady was the offensive coordinator with the Panthers from 2020-21.

The Bills’ move comes five days before their next game, Sunday at home against the New York Jets. Buffalo lost the first matchup 22-16 in the season opener on Sept. 11.
