Bills name Joe Danna as new safeties coach

The former Texans safeties coach replaces Jim Salgado, who was fired on Jan. 26

Orchard Park, N.Y. (WGR 550) - The Buffalo Bills have made their first new coaching hire of the offseason, bringing in former Houston Texans safeties coach Joe Sanna to fill the same role in Orchard Park.

Danna has been a coach in the NFL for 15 years in multiple rolls, including his role in Houston this past year and five other years (2017-21) with the Jacksonville Jaguars. In those five years, he served as the team’s defensive backs coach, nickels, safety, and assistant secondary coach.

Danna's first coaching experience started in 1999 when he was a graduate assistant at Central Michigan, where he was a two-year starter at wide receiver. His first NFL experience didn't come until 2008, where he was a defensive assistant with the Atlanta Falcons.

The Texans gave up the 10th-fewest passing yards per-game (209.3) this past season, and also tied the New York Jets with the fewest passing touchdowns (15) in the regular season.
