Chan Gailey coached the Buffalo Bills from 2010-2012. In his time with Buffalo, the team went 16-32. Gailey was fired by the Bills after the 2012 season and met with the media after being relieved of his duties. During the 2012 press conference with the media, Gailey said the following:
"I want to thank the fans, great Buffalo fans, great football town," he said as his eyes watered and his voice cracked ever so slightly. "These are loyal, loyal fans and I understand that. I think that the next staff will have a great opportunity for success and to make this another great football franchise. This will probably be — and I say probably, but I think it will be — the first place that's ever fired me, that I'll pull for."
It's safe to say that Gailey won't be pulling for the Bills on Sunday. Gailey now serves as the offensive coordinator of the NY Jets. If the Jets are able to defeat the Bills in Buffalo on Sunday, they'll be playoff bound.
On Thursday, Gailey met with the media about the game and was asked if he'd be emotional in his return to Buffalo. He gave a very simple and fast response.
However, Gailey did speak highly about the people of Buffalo. When asked about his fondest memory in Buffalo, Gailey praised the people of Western New York.
Although Gailey said he won't be emotional for Sunday's game, he'll certainly be excited if he's able to defeat one of his former teams on the way to the playoffs.null
