Brian Daboll has spent the last three years helping to develop Bills quarterback Josh Allen and that work has gone well enough that Buffalo ranked second in points scored this season.

It’s also gone well enough for the Bills offensive coordinator to draw interest for head coaching jobs. Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that the Chargers have requested permission to interview Daboll.

Daboll went to the same high school as Chargers General Manager Tom Telesco. That connection sparked speculation that he’d be in the mix of candidates to succeed Anthony Lynn even before Lynn was officially fired on Monday.

The Jets have also requested an interview with Daboll.

  1. Daboll and his wife are both from Buffalo, so here’s hoping he doesn’t want to go anywhere just yet. Hopefully he’ll be smart enough to stay away from poor ownership groups like the Chargers and Jets.

  2. In 2018 – Buffalo’s offense was ranked 30th.
    In 2019 – Buffalo’s offense was ranked 24th.
    (Enter Stefon Diggs)
    In 2020 – Buffalo’s offense was ranked 2nd.

    These offensive coordinators are only as good as their players are talented, but yet they get head coaching jobs because of the success of their players’ talents.

    Kellen Moore was the greatest offensive mind in the history of football for the first 5 weeks of the season. Dak Prescott got hurt, and the offense staggered in ranked 16th with two time pro-bowler Andy Dalton leading the way.

    Remove Stefon Diggs from the equation, Buffalo is a middle of the road offense and no one is talking about Daboll

    I don’t look at what Daboll did this year, I look back what he did during his first year when he had to develop plans for Matt Barkley and Derek Anderson (both just off the street) in a pinch due to injuries to Josh Allen and Nat Peterman. The game with Anderson they lost against a stout New England D at the time, but they were in the game going into the second half and Anderson threw for close to 300 yards. Barkley beat the Jets.

    Second half of that year Daboll asks for more speed on offense and they pluck from the practice squad of Denver Isiah Mackenzie. That kid just got 3 touchdowns last game and is a big part of the offense even with adding 3 great WR’s over the last 3 years. The improvements in the offense during second half of the year were tremendous given the O line and overall talent on the offensive side of the ball.

    Great OC and deserves a shot at a head coaching job.
