There is an irony to the Matt Millen firing. The last head coach in Detroit that he let go, Dick Jauron, is on the verge of receiving a long-term contract extension in Buffalo.
The Bills and Jauron have had recent ongoing and amiable talks aimed at procuring an extension for the head coach now in the last year of his contract. It is likely to get done given Buffalo’s strong start and how players feel about Jauron.
Bills owner Ralph Wilson prefers to finalize and announce these types of big deals on his own timetable. But his timetable has been expedited with Buffalo’s quick start and it is highlighted in a week in which Jauron’s former boss has been let go.
