[Kansas City.com] Chan Gailey was hired by the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday, getting a second chance to prove himself as an NFL coach and inheriting a team that has missed the playoffs for 10 straight years.
The team scheduled an afternoon news conference but did not say why. Three people familiar with the decision told The Associated Press that Gailey would be introduced then. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had yet to announce the move.
Gailey has been out of football since he was fired as the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator in August, two weeks before the season opener. He was entering his second season with Kansas City after a six-year stretch as Georgia Tech’s coach, during which he went 44-33 before being fired in 2007.
