Wilson ponders Jauron's future

Ralph Wilson will be holding meetings with team executives to determine the fate of embattled head coach Dick Jauron.

Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson is still uncertain of head coach Dick Jauron's future with the team. According to an AP report, Wilson is still deciding whether or not to renew Jauron's contract, which expires at the end of the season.

In the interview conducted by the Associated Press, Wilson said he will be meeting with team executives in the next two weeks to determine the fate of Jauron. Team COO Russ Brandon and chief scout Tom Modrak will be relied on heavily for input. Wilson also spoke of a slight front office adjustment, giving Modrak more input on football-related decisions.

While it may look grim for Jauron, Wilson said he was impressed with the way the players rallied around their coach in their 30-23 win in Denver on Sunday.

Jauron's tenure with the team came under immense scrutiny when the Bills dropped seven of their last nine games after starting the season 5-1. Their impressive start had many predicting the Bills would be a lock for the playoffs. Instead, the team is absent from the postseason for the ninth consecutive year and looking to prevent a third-straight 7-9 season.

There were reports in October of a three-year extension given to Jauron, but both Jauron and the Bills front office have vehemently refused to comment on the status of any contract negotiations.

The Bills have their final game this Sunday against the New England Patriots.
