The Buffalo Bills introduced interim coach Perry Fewell on Tuesday night via a brief press conference at team headquarters.
Asked to explain his football philosophy, Fewell was concise: “Play like hell and win.”
We already like this guy.
Fewell called the job an “opportunity of a lifetime,” but he declined to talk about whether owner Ralph Wilson has indicated that the opportunity could extend beyond 2009.
As to the offense, Fewell plans no major changes. “We are who we are,” he said.
Fewell also said that he’ll name a starting quarterback for Sunday’s game at Jacksonville on Wednesday.
So will the Bills be any different under Perry Fewell than they were under Dick Jauron?
“We’ll be the Buffalo Bills,” Fewell said. “We’ll represent you well, and we’ll be the Buffalo Bills.”
Fewell joined the Bills in 2006. Before that, he spent 2005 with the Bears, 2003 and 2004 with the Rams, and 1998 through 2002 with the Jaguars. The 47-year-old coached at the college level from 1985 through 1997.
