The Bills introduced five new assistant coaches who were added to Doug Marrone’s staff on Tuesday including veteran linebackers coach Fred Pagac. Exposed to a lot of defensive systems in his 37-year coaching career, Pagac doesn’t foresee it being a long and drawn out effort to school up on the players on defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz’s defensive system.
“Obviously we want to keep it where our players can learn it,” said Pagac. “I think that’s a key in any coaching situation whether you’re in it for a while or not. I think coach Schwartz will do a great job of setting up the defense. I can see the communication as we’re going through right now being similar to what they were last year so there should not be a lot of new teaching. The schemes are a little different to what they played a year ago. Really it’s not a bad situation to be in. I think the players will pick it up very easily.”
