Josh Allen: Teams would be foolish to not offer Brian Daboll a job

USA TODAY Sports

Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is up for a few of the vacant head coaching positions across the league.

After a couple of years as a prime candidate given what he’s done to help develop quarterback Josh Allen, it seems like this year should be the year for Daboll to make the leap. He’s set for a second interview with the Giants this week and has also drawn interest from the Dolphins and Bears.

While Daboll’s departure would mean a significant change for Allen entering the 2022 season, Allen seemed more than understanding of that when he spoke to the media on Monday.

“I think teams would be foolish not to offer Brian Daboll a job,” Allen said, via Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN. “I’m praying they don’t, because I want him back here, but I love him and his family too much to really think that. I think he’s one of the best coaches in the league.”

Should Daboll move on, Allen said he would support quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey taking over at offensive coordinator.

“I think every QB would love to be a part of that process and I do know there’s a guy in this building that I’m a huge advocate for [in Dorsey],” Allen said. “Again, it’s not my job. It’s not my decision to make.”

Daboll has been one of the driving forces of Allen’s development since taking over as offensive coordinator in 2018. That was the same year Allen was drafted at No. 7 overall.

A former QB in the league, Dorsey has been the Bills’ QBs coach since 2019. He was previously the Panthers’ QBs coach from 2013-2017.

  1. Look at the expression on Gabriel Davis….what a pro and teammate…just caught 4 TD passes but you would never know it. That’s a winner right there.

  2. No team needs this cat more than the Bears. I don’t think he’s headed there, though.

  3. No great offensive mind has Josh Allen run the ball all the time. They are ruining this incredibly talented QB.

  4. Daboll should be a decent HC. Good offensive mind.

    Leslie Frazier on the other hand…..He went from “Hey,this is an impressive resume, just what our team needs” to “Yeah, we’ll be in touch”.

  5. Josh Allen just keeps coming off better and better with his post-game comments and these ones re his coach – just building on the crazy good on-field stuff.

    Bills fans sure hit the lottery with this guy.

  6. The dilemma for OCs like Daboll and Bienemy is that they have super elite QBs to work with. Prospective teams can’t be sure how much is OC talent versus their QB’s talent.

  7. If the Bills front office is smart they would replace McDermott with Daboll at head coach. Daboll is the one getting the best out of Josh Allen. If he leaves, the offense and Josh Allen will regress.

  8. I would assume Frazier is out of the running? How do you let Hill and Kelce beat you with 13 seconds left? Hold them at the line of scrimmage and you burn time in exchange for a 5 yard penalty, at WORST.

  9. He may be a good coach but he if hired, the team may want to have a QB that can run the ball and has a good defense. Just saying.

    If the Pats had any brains left after getting them beaten out by Josh Allen, they would fire Belichick and hire Daboll.
