The Bills will be keeping Dick Jauron as their head coach. Buffalo owner Ralph Wilson confirmed the decision to the Buffalo News. He also confirmed that Jauron does have a signed contract extension.
In a statement, Wilson said, "It is well known that I share many of the fans' dissatisfaction with our offensive game management. That being said, I believe that this team, at this time, is better served by continuity in the coaching staff rather than disruptive overhaul. The team played hard all year long and there are many positives to build on. This is not to say we will be complacent. In my discussion with Dick and out senior football people this issues are recognized and I am confident they will be addressed."
Wilson would not elaborate on when that extension was signed or the terms of it, though it's been widely reported the contract is for three more seasons. If true, Jauron could stay in Buffalo through the 2011 season. Jauron flew to Detroit Tuesday to meet with Wilson and other top Bills brass.
