Bills remove offensive coordinator Schonert

Bills coach Dick Jauron decided to remove offensive coordinator Turk Schonert on Friday morning, according to a league source.

Jauron informed his staff that he wasn’t getting what he wanted in terms of pace and being quick with the team’s no-huddle offense. He felt there was limited movement and formations with the scheme. Quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt will now call plays while running backs coach Eric Studesville is still the run-game coordinator.

Over their final two preseason games, the Bills scored only two field goals, both in Thursday night’s 17-6 loss to Detroit. Buffalo has been outscored, 75-12, in their five preseason games and 49-0 in their last three.

The Bills open the regular season a week from Monday at New England.

Schonert is the third offensive coordinator to be relieved of his duties in the past week. As one source put it “seems to be a copycat league for sure.”
