Former Los Angeles Rams offensive coordinator Rob Boras on Tuesday afternoon officially joined the Buffalo Bills coaching staff as the tight ends coach.
Boras had held the offensive coordinator position on Jeff Fisher's coaching staff for the last two years. Prior to that, he was the team's tight end coach. He becomes the second former assistant from the Rams to be hired by new Bills head coach Sean McDermott as defensive line coach Mike Waufle made the leap last week.
The 46-year-old has been coaching in the NFL since 2004 as the tight ends coach for the Chicago Bears, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Rams. Boras had been promoted to the interim offensive coordinator for the last four regular season games of the 2015 season. He was officially named to the position prior to last season, which Los Angeles struggled tremendously finishing with a 4-12 record while holding the league's worst statistical offense for the second straight year.
As for the Rams, new head coach Sean McVay is expected to take over play calling duties for the team moving forward. He had previous been the offensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins for the last three seasons. The Redskins had much success on that side of the ball in the 2016 regular season finished third in yards per game (403.4), second in yards per play (6.40), and were the second-best statistical passing offense (297.4).
McVay has already brought aboard a couple of familiar faces to his coaching staff. He has hired former Redskins defensive coordinator Joe Barry as the linebackers coach, and former Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips to hold the same position in Los Angeles.
The Rams are also expected to keep special teams coordinator John Fassel, who has held that position for the last five seasons and was the interim head coach in last three games of the 2016 season after Fisher was fired.null
