Bills Coach Gailey Hires Several Former Chiefs Assistants

Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey, most recently with the Kansas City Chiefs, has dipped into a familiar pool as he puts together his coaching staff.

As we previously told you, the Bills announced the arrival of Curtis Modkins as the offensive coordinator. Modkins was with the Chiefs in 2008 and has connections with Gailey dating back to Georgia Tech. Coincidentally, Modkins took the same job Maurice Carthon left in Arizona.

They also announced the arrival of Joe D'Alessandris as offensive line coach. He was one of two Chiefs assistants that did not have their contracts renewed following the season.

Also headed to the Bills is Kevin Patullo, who served as an offensive assistant and quality control coach prior to the Haley regime.

The Bills have yet to hire a defensive coordinator so it'll be interesting to see if that hire comes with Chiefs ties as well.

(Note: Also hired is Bob Bicknell, who was on the Chiefs staff.)
