Bills special teams coach honored
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills assistant Bobby April is the NFL special teams coach of the year after a vote by his peers.
April earned the honor -- his second in four seasons -- at an awards ceremony in Reno, Nev., on Tuesday night. In his fifth season in Buffalo, April's special teams finished in the top 10 in four categories, including a league-leading 15.5 yards per punt return.
The Bills special teams scored three touchdowns, including punter Brian Moorman's pass to defensive end Ryan Denney on a fake field-goal attempt.
