George Edwards Fired As Buffalo Bills Defensive Coordinator

The Bills finished the year with the 30th ranked defense and for that they fired defensive coordinator George Edwards.

The Buffalo Bills have fired George Edwards as defensive coordinator, head coach Chan Gailey confirmed. He will be replaced by Dave Wannstedt. This move shouldn't come as a major surprise considering how porous the Bills defense has been this season.

Buffalo's defense finished the year ranked 30th in the NFL in scoring. They routinely gave up a lot of points as the team lost eight of its last nine games. The Bills had a 21-point lead over the New England Patriots on Sunday but ended up losing 49-21.

SB Nation's Buffalo Rumblings has GM Buddy Nix's schedule over the next week for the end-of-season meetings:

To summarize: today, he'll be meeting individually with players, who are cleaning out their lockers and taking a post-season break. Tomorrow, he'll meet with head coach Chan Gailey and his coaching staff. Wednesday and Thursday will be dedicated to personnel meetings with his pro and college scouting staffs, and on Friday, he'll sit down with team owner Ralph C. Wilson, Jr.

Apparently he didn't need to wait to talk to Gailey about Edwards' future.
