The Bills will hire Gill Byrd as their new secondary coach, per multiple reports.

Byrd was a two-time Pro Bowl cornerback and is a member of the Chargers Hall of Fame. He started his coaching career with the Rams in 2003, then worked under Lovie Smith both with the Bears and later with the Buccaneers. He most recently spent 2014-15 as the secondary coach in Tampa Bay.

In Buffalo he will work under new head coach Sean McDermott and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, who was also the defensive coordinator in Tampa Bay for Byrd’s two seasons there.

    I bet he’s a dang good coach. Guy never could really run fast and yet he turned in a very respectable career at a position that demands speed.

    Sean McDermott is putting together a very good staff. I hope the key players in Buffalo embrace him and his staff with sincere leaders.

    He’s in the chokers hall of fame? What’s the criteria for getting in there? A pulse? Regular bathing? Able to dress yourself? That’s like being the smartest guy who voted for Hillary.

    Despite free agent signings and releasing top talent (Darelle Revis) the Buc’s secondary was horrible under Lovie/Leslie/Byrd.

    Sorry Bills fans.
