April to Pittsburgh?

Bobby April could be employed again very quickly.

The now former Bills assistant head coach and special teams coordinator spent his last day at One Bills Drive Wednesday, but could find new work in a matter of days.

The Pittsburgh Steelers just fired special teams coach Bob Ligashesky, and April has a previous coaching stint in Pittsburgh when he served as special teams coach under Bill Cowher from 1994-95.

Speaking to April by phone Thursday morning, he said, “he has a few opportunities out there.” But he would not name any teams.

He did say the hard thing is deciding on the best situation when there is more than one available to him.

April’s credentials speak for themselves. His special teams units have finished number one in the league (based on Dallas Morning News rankings – Rick Gosselin) three of the last five years, including 2008.

As Bills punter Brian Moorman told me, “Some team is going to be lucky to get him.”
