Jauron departure not unexpected

Posted by Chris Brown on November 17, 2009 – 3:41 pm

The decision by Bills owner Ralph Wilson to relieve Dick Jauron of his coaching duties was not one that caught many fans off guard.

The 1-4 start that the team got off to this season certainly put immediate pressure on Jauron and his staff, especially the humbling home loss to Cleveland.

Media members had been asking Jauron every week since that loss about his assessment of his job security.

The two road wins at New York and Carolina that followed the Cleveland loss unfortunately proved to be just a brief respite from the struggles that have plagued the team all season. Difficulty converting third downs and scoring points on offense and stopping the run on defense.

How much can be changed with seven games left in the season remains to be seen, but Mr. Wilson evidently felt this decision had to be made at this time.
