Donnie Henderson is out as Buffalo Bills defensive backs coach

The Bills have made a coaching move.

Rex Ryan was asked at the end of the season press conference if there would be any changes to the Buffalo Bills coaching staff. At the time, Ryan said that meetings had to take place to go over evaluations before any moves would be made or announced. It appears that the evaluation period is over as Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reported on one coaching change on Tuesday.

Per Marvez, Donnie Henderson is out as Bills defensive backs coach. Henderson joined the Bills coaching staff with Doug Marrone in 2013. He was on Marrone's coaching staff at Syracuse before that and remained with Buffalo after Marrone opted out and was replaced by Ryan as head coach. 

Henderson's main focus as defensive backs coach was working with the team's cornerbacks. In 2015, Buffalo saw outstanding play from Buffalo's top two cornerbacks, rookie Ronald Darby and Stephon Gilmore. In addition to the duo, Henderson has also worked with the likes of Nickell RobeyMario Butler and Leodis McKelvin in his time with the Bills. The cornerback position was one area that played very well throughout the course of the season in 2015.

Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News was able to talk to Henderson, who confirmed that he wouldn't be returning to the Bills staff in 2016. Henderson did inform Carucci that he has interviewed for a vacancy on the Indianapolis Colts' coaching staff.
