Inside The Bills

Gailey’s right hand man

Bills Assistant head coach Dave Wannstedt is going to have a pretty large role here at the NFL combine this week.

Head coach Chan Gailey shed some light on Wannstedt’s Assistant head coach role in addition to his inside linebacker duties. It sounds as if Wannstedt and Gailey will be side by side through almost any and all prospect reviews here this week.

“Really he helps in the overall evaluation,” Gailey told Buffalobills.com. “He’s going to sit in on almost all the evaluation meetings while we’re at the combine here. Offense, defense. He’s going to be in almost all of those. He’s a guy that I can bounce things off of. He’s got a ton of experience. He can help me think of things I might not think of. Two brains are better than one most of the time. So I think that if we can continue to bounce things off each other hopefully we’ll be better. I know what a great person he is and how smart he is. He’ll have input in a lot of areas.”

With Wannstedt spending the last six years as a college head coach he’s seen as a valuable resource by Gailey and provide some inside knowledge on dozens of prospects here at the combine. Stay close to Buffalobills.com as we’ll have our exclusive one-on-one interview with Chan Gailey from the combine later today in the media center.
