It's the third straight offensive coordinator departure in just two years for the Tide.
With Brian Daboll jumping at the first chance to jump back in the National Football League, he was hired to run Buffalo's offense Sunday, it didn't take Kiffin long to react to the news.
In the past year, Daboll has won a Super Bowl as a member of the New England Patriots' staff and then the national title with Alabama, where he was one of the nation's highest-paid assistant coaches at $1.2 million.
"We our excited to hire Brian as our offensive coordinator and welcome him back to Western New York", Bills head coach Sean McDermott said. Jeremy Pruitt is now the head coach at Tennessee, while Derrick Ansley is the defensive backs coach of the Oakland Raiders. He owns a home in the Buffalo area. Now with Daboll gone, Saban is coach-shopping again.
Daboll also has four years of experience as an offensive coordinator in the NFL.
With the Patriots running the risk of possibly losing both coordinators at the end of the season, one potential replacement is officially off the board today. He was the offensive play caller for the Cleveland Browns (2009-2010), Miami Dolphins (2011) and Kansas City Chiefs (2012). He also was the New York Jets' quarterbacks coach in 2007-08.
