The Buffalo Bills put on an offensive performance for the ages in the AFC Divisional Round. The only issue was the Chiefs did, too. With the Bills’ season officially in the rear-view mirror, the team is looking to the offseason in order to find the missing piece to help them reach the Super Bowl. While they look to improve the roster, there’s a real chance that their coaching staff suffers a significant loss. Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll has been linked to various vacant head coaching roles across the league, and Josh Allen called out NFL teams for not having snapped up the OC already, via Mike Giardi.
Josh Allen says teams would be "foolish" not to offer his offensive coordinator, Brian Daboll, a head coaching job, even though selfishly he wants Daboll to remain. #Bills

While Allen admitted that he’s selfishly hoping that Daboll will remain in his role as the Bills’ offensive coordinator, the star QB claimed that teams would be “foolish” not to hire Daboll away from Buffalo.
Clearly, Allen holds Daboll in extremely high regard, but fans could probably have guessed that based on Allen’s play on the field. Daboll has done a fantastic job of designing plays that play to the strengths of his star quarterback, who boasts blazing speed and an incredibly powerful arm. Of course, having a talented quarterback like Allen would make the job of any offensive coordinator a bit easier, but Allen knows just how impactful Daboll is to the Bills’ success.
Daboll has been the Bills’ offensive coordinator since Allen’s rookie season in 2018, and the two have developed in their respective roles alongside one another. Prior to landing the role with Buffalo, Daboll had served as the Chiefs offensive coordinator in 2012, and was in the same role with the Dolphins in 2011. He was Cleveland’s OC from 2009-10.
