Under Daboll’s direction, this year’s Bills squad went 10-6 and made the playoffs as the fifth seed in the AFC. Their offense has largely revolved around the running game, led by the three-pronged attack of running backs Frank Gore and Devin Singletary and quarterback Josh Allen. The three carried the ball over 100 times each this season, with Gore leading the way with 166 carries. Singletary led the team with 775 yards on the ground on 151 attempts while Allen led all quarterbacks and was eighth in the league with his nine rushing touchdowns. The Bills boasted the eighth-best rushing attack in the NFL, averaging 128.4 yards per game.
After a few years at the collegiate level with William & Mary and Michigan State, Daboll has spent the better part of the last two decades in the NFL across six teams, making stops with New England (2000-06, 2013-16), the New York Jets (2007-08), Cleveland (2009-10), Miami (2011), Kansas City (2012), and in his offensive coordinator role with Buffalo since 2018. He reunited with Nick Saban as part of his national championship staff at Alabama in 2017 as co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. His lone defensive assistant role was with the Patriots as an assistant from 2000-01. Since then, he has been on the offensive side of the ball, taking on the coordinator position with the Browns, Dolphins, Chiefs and the Bills.
