Despite going on a 1-7 slide that left the Buffalo Bills out of the playoffs, coach Dick Jauron signed an extension on Sunday, sources told ESPN.
The deal runs through the 2011 season. ESPN and the NFL Network reported on Oct. 26 that the coach had agreed to the deal. The Bills were 5-2 at that point and in contention in the AFC East.
The Bills lost 31-27 to the New York Jets on Sunday, giving up the go-ahead score in the final two minutes.
Jauron, 56-74 in nine seasons with the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions and Bills, entered this season in the final year of his initial three-year contract with Buffalo.
I’m not sure we’ve used the “Mismanagement” tag for the Bills yet, but we are now.
