“I don’t hire good coaches, I hire good people. If they turn out to be good coaches too, that’s a plus.” –Geno Auriemma
Pizza Hut is not the only one making a return to the Queen City.

The Bills rehired a name from the past to coach the offensive line. Aaron Kromer has 20 years of NFL experience as an offensive line coach and offensive coordinator.
“Well, well, well, how the turntables.” –Michael Scott
Kromer returns to Buffalo, where his line led the way for the league’s best rushing offense in 2015 and 2016 (with averages of 152 yards and 164.4 yards). He has not been on a sabbatical since he coached in Orchard Park last. He has coached the Rams’ OL from 2017-2020, helping them win an NFC Championship and Super Bowl appearance.
“Everybody deserves a second chance in this world. That’s basically all I ask.” –Shannen Doherty
This is no Fall Guy situation, as it was when the Sabres brought back Ted Nolan to coach the tanking Sabres. Aaron Kromer is coming back to Western New York because his offensive lines block well.
“What is that, a police job or a TV series?” Colt Seavers, The Fall Guy
Did someone say police? Nothing but the best character for the corporate culture at One Bills Drive. During his first stint with the Bills, an off-field incident made headlines. Kromer confronted three boys over taking his beach chairs. He allegedly grabbed their fishing pole and threw it into the water. He pushed one of the boys to the ground and punched him in the face, demanding they return the chairs. The individual that was punched had injuries to his eye. Coach Kromer allegedly threatened to kill the victim’s family if he reported him to the police.
It sounds like he would fit right in as Erie County Executive. If we have him handle both jobs, that is funds saved that can be reallocated towards a new stadium. What do ya think of that business plan? Not too shabby?
Things we know about the Buffalo Bills this week:
We have yet to crown a champion this season as it comes down to the Rams and the Bengals. That does not stop Sports Illustrated from looking ahead as they have the Chiefs and Bills as the favorites to win next years Super Bowl. That is pretty impressive considering both teams have been on the golf course for several weeks.
The Buffalo Bills have re-signed DT Eli Ankou to a reserve/futures contract. This guarantees that he cannot be signed by another team.
ALL IN THE FAMILY
Aaron Kromer‘s son Zack is the quality control coach for the Rams and will be coaching at the Super Bowl.
