The Buffalo Bills fired defensive coordinator George Edwards, head coach Chan Gailey said in his Monday news conference. Veteran coach Dave Wannstedt will take over the position.
Buffalo's defense struggled consistently throughout the season. The Bills (6-10) finished 28th against the run and 19th against the pass. They also were 30th in points allowed.
Look for the Bills to address and improve the defense via free agency and the draft this offseason.
