Three Added To Staff: Mike Mularkey continues to round out his coaching staff. He has added Brad Roll as the new strength and conditioning coach, Frank Verducci is the tight ends coach, and Mike Miller was hired as an offensive assistant. Roll spent the last eight years with the Dolphins as their assistant strength and conditioning coach. Miller was with Mularkey in Pittsburgh the past seven seasons, five of them in his current position as an offensive assistant. Verducci wasn't in the league last year but was the offensive line coach with the Cowboys in 2002. He served as the tight ends coach with the Bengals from 1999 to 2001. This brings the grand total of 13 assistants on Mike Mularkey's staff. He still needs a defensive backs coach and possibly a quarterback coach.
Jones Promoted: As we reported earlier, Roll's addition to the staff would not leave Rusty Jones out in the cold. Jones has been promoted to a newly created position of Director of Physical Development. Roll will report directly to Jones who has been with the team since 1985 and is highly respected around the league for his work with nutrition.
Ticket Prices Unchanged: The Bills also announced today that they will not raise ticket prices for the 2004 season. Prices once again will range from $30-$39 for a single game season ticket and $30-$48 for individual game tickets. The average ticket price will be $41 which could rank the them as the third lowest prices in the league.
Roll To Be Added: The Buffalo News is reporting that Brad Roll is expected to join the Bills strength and conditioning staff. He will work with Rusty Jones, who is expected to enter his 20th year as the strength and condtioning coordinator.
Gilbride QB Coach: Kevin Gilbride will be named the QB coach of the Giants. We reported yesterday that he was being hired by his good friend Tom Couglin. Originally, we thought he was going to be the offensive coordinator but it has now been learned that it will be as QB coach. Gilbride was also up for the head coaching job at Cornell University.
