When the season started, there were questions about whether Bills coach Dick Jauron would be in Buffalo long term. But those questions have dissipated, along with any ideas that the Bills might not be good enough to compete for the AFC East title.
The Bills and Jauron have agreed on what is believed to be a three-year contract extension that will tie the head coach to Buffalo through 2011. Jauron was in the last year of his contract, which is how questions about his future first arose.
But Buffalo’s superb start has translated into a lucrative extension for Jauron, who has done a superb job helping to rebuild what has become one of the league’s better teams.
