Chan Gailey: 'Everything will be evaluated'
By James Walker
Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey is aware of the hot seat he is in. His team entered the year with playoff aspirations and is currently 5-10.
This will go down as one of the most disappointing seasons for the Bills in recent memory. Gailey is 15-32 in three seasons. He’s had double-digit losses in each of his three years. The Bills have lost their past two games to the Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks by a margin of 74-27.
It's becoming harder and harder to make a case to bring back Gailey in 2013. The embattled head coach discussed his job security Monday morning on WGR 550 in Buffalo.
"I think everything will be evaluated at the end of the year," Gailey said. "Things have not gone in the win column like I wanted them to or like any of us wanted them to. I know we let the fans down. They believed in us.
"I believe we are headed in the right direction but I don’t have anything to show for that."
Gailey has one game reamining next Sunday against the New York Jets (6-9). At best, Gailey can match last year's 6-10 record.
Whether a 6-10 or 5-11 mark will be enough to keep Gailey for another year will be up to the Bills after the season.
