Report: Buffalo Bills to promote Pat Meyer to assistant offensive line coach

Alex Marvez reported that Pat Meyer will replace Kurt Anderson as assistant offensive line coach.

The Buffalo Bills lost assistant offensive line coach Kurt Anderson to the Arkansas Razorbacks almost two weeks ago. According to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports, Buffalo is ready to promote from within to replace Anderson.

Meyer served as Buffalo's football operations consultant in 2015. Before joining the Bills, Meyer was with the Chicago Bears. He was the assistant offensive line coach for the team in 2013. The 2013 unit performed well and only gave up 30 sacks on the season. The following year, Meyer was promoted to Chicago's offensive line coach. The unit did not perform as well in 2014, but Kyle Long made back-to-back Pro Bowls during these two seasons. After not being retained by the Bears in 2014, Meyer joined offensive line coach Aaron Kromer in Buffalo.

The fact that Meyer has worked with Kromer for the last three seasons most likely made the promotion an easy decision for Buffalo.
