Gailey Introduces Coordinators

Bills Raise Ticket Prices: After another losing season followed by underwhelming picks for general manager and head coach, the Bills have raised ticket prices. Season ticket prices will rise from anywhere between $2 and $10. They will still have the cheapest ticket prices in the league on average $15 lower than the league average. Season ticket prices will range between $280 and $640 as the team will play seven regular season and one preseason home game with a preseason and regular season game in Toronto. Individual game tickets will range from $45 to $90. What do you think of the new pricing structure? Take our poll on our homepage and let us know.

Gailey Finds Teachers: Chan Gailey introduced his three coordinators today, Special teams coach Bruce DeHaven, defensive coordinator George Edwards, and offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins. He said he wanted teachers and communicators and feels he's got that. He confirmed the switch to a 3-4 defense and re-iterated that he will be calling the plays and running the offense but Modkins will help in the organizational role offensively and he will be invaluable to the team. There will be a couple of more staff members to be announced next week and that will finish off his staff but the main core is complete with the moves earlier today.

Kwan Hired: Chan Gailey also announced the hiring of Stan Kwan as the Asst. Special Teams coordinator. He said he's also very happy to have two top strength and conditioning coaches. He said they will both concentrate on their areas of expertise but their work will overlap. John Gamble is expected to work with the line mostly while Eric Ciano will work with the receivers and defensive back. Gailey is also thrilled to get Kwan who was a head man before in Detroit.

3-4 Defense Will Be Flexible: Chan Gailey admitted in his press conference today that the move to the 3-4 will be tough. He feels it will be worth it since it creates big problems for the offense. He knows George Edwards will put guys in position to do what they do well to create situations to make them successful. He re-iterated that they won't stay in the 3-4 if the talent doesn't allow it. He also expects to give different looks depending on the situation.

Wants Schobel To Stay: Chan Gailey said he has spoken to Aaron Schobel and wants him to remain a Bill but he feels he has not made a decision on retirement or not. He called the conversation good. On the quarterback situation, he said they will know what direction they want to go by the start of free agency next month.

Cross Retained: Chan Gailey announced the retaining of one more coach from the previous staff. DeMontie Cross will be the inside linebackers coach. Cross was the assistant linebackers and special teams coach last year. It was also announced that Bob Sanders will coach the outside linebackers this year. He coached the defensive line last year. Sanders was the linebackers coach with Miami for four years. Giff Smith will coach the defensive line. He was hired as a defensive assistant. This may round out the coaching staff. Front Office.

Assistant To Be Introduced: Chan Gailey will introduce several of his assistant coaches during a press conference at Noon today at One Bills Drive. We will have snipets from what was said at the press conference later this afternoon.
