Bills hire Morris to coach offensive line
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills have hired Pat Morris to be their offensive line coach.
He became one of the final additions to Doug Marrone's staff.
Morris has 15 years of NFL experience — the most on Marrone's newly assembled staff. He spent the 2011 season coaching the same position with Tampa Bay, and he has also been an assistant in Minnesota, Detroit and San Francisco.
Morris-coached lines have played a role in helping three teams lead the NFL in rushing: the 49ers in both 1998 and '99, and the Vikings in 2007.
Marrone, the former Syracuse coach, has hired 17 assistants since taking over two weeks ago. He replaced Chan Gailey, who was fired after three straight losing seasons.
