The 46-year-old Daboll was considered a strong candidate to become a head coach this offseason, and his name climbed even higher up the probability meter once Schoen was given the GM job. With Daboll, the Bills offense thrived in the team’s second straight AFC East title season, finishing third in the league by scoring 28.4 points per game. He was also the 2020 AP NFL Assistant Coach of the Year, when he helped quarterback Josh Allen set franchise records in passing yards, touchdown passes, completion percentage and passer rating.

Daboll has familiarity with the New York area as a former Jets quarterbacks coach from 2007 to 2008, and has a winning pedigree as part of the Patriots organization for five of their six Super Bowl victories. He has also been an offensive coordinator for a national championship-winning Alabama team back in 2017, before joining the Bills.
