The Bills went to the college ranks to find their next quarterbacks coach hiring David Lee away from Ole Miss.

The Buffalo Bills have a new quarterbacks coach. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the team is in the process of hiring David Lee to the position. Lee was the Ole Miss offensive coordinator last season and spent three years previously with the Miami Dolphins as quarterbacks coach.

Lee will now start working with Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, who signed a long-term deal with the team last season. Fitzpatrick completed 62 percent of his passes last season for 3,832 yards. He threw for 24 touchdowns and a league-leading 23 interceptions.

Clearly, improving Fitzpatrick's decision-making will be one of the key parts of Lee's hire considering the Bills are fully invested in Fitzpatrick via a six-year, $59 million contract signed last season.

Lee's time in Miami came during the rise of the Wildcat so you have to wonder if you see anything like that in Buffalo next season.
