The 54-year-old Kromer went on to become the offensive line coach and the eventual run game coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams from 2017-2020, which included a Super Bowl appearance in 2018.

A native of Sandusky, Ohio, Kromer began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Miami University (Ohio) in 1990. His first NFL coaching job came in 2001 when he became the Oakland Raiders' assistant offensive line coach.

Kromer was suspended for six games by the Bills in 2015 after an altercation with a teenager resulted in he and his son, Zachary, being arrested for battery. All charges against Kromer and his son were eventually dropped.

Kromer has also spent time on the coaching staffs of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New Orleans Saints, and Chicago Bears. This included a six-game stint as the interim head coach of the Saints in 2012 while Sean Payton was serving his suspension for "BountyGate."

Former Bills center Eric Wood played for Kromer for the two years he was previously in Buffalo.
