BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Bills coach Dick Jauron will return next season, team owner Ralph Wilson announced Tuesday.
Though citing the dissatisfaction of the team's fans over a third consecutive 7-9 season, Wilson elected to retain Jauron and the entire coaching staff, believing the team is "better served by continuity in the coaching staff rather than a disruptive overhaul."
The decision was released in a three-paragraph statement issued by the Bills, and came shortly after Jauron met with Wilson at the owner's home in suburban Detroit.
Wilson did not say whether Jauron received a contract extension beyond next season. Jauron had completed his initial three-year contract after this season, and kept his job despite the team losing eight of its final 10 games after a 5-1 start.
