Two new coaches are on the staff of the Bills, both on the defensive side of the ball.
The team came to terms with both Pepper Johnson (Defensive Line) and Fred Pagac (Linebackers).
A five-time Super Bowl champion, Johnson will enter his 15th year coaching in the NFL in 2014. Johnson has spent the past 14 seasons working for the New England Patriots, serving in a variety of roles including eight seasons (2004-11) as the team’s defensive line coach. During his 13-year playing career, Johnson was a part of two championship teams and has been a member of three championship teams since joining New England’s coaching staff in 2000.
A veteran coach with more than a decade of experience on both the collegiate and professional coaching levels, Pagac comes to Buffalo after spending the past eight seasons with the Minnesota Vikings. During his time with the Vikings, Pagac helped lead the Vikings’ defense to four top 10 finishes in total defense including three straight top 10 finishes from 2008-10.
