At first glance and looking at how the Bills defense fared this season I am not overtly impressed.

Would've been real great has they been able to lure the Giant's DL coach away.

Not that it is a direct correlation but the best the Bills defense has done the past 3 years is 18th in the league and twice have landed behind us in rankings.

Never heard of him, which probably makes no difference whatsoever.

Good catch, HB.

It's not sexy, but I like the looks of his track record. If he can add another 12-15 sacks per year from the D line in a more aggressive defense, our secondary should look better instantly.

With Spagnalo leaving NY, I doubt the Giants wll let anybody from their staff leave for a lateral move.

Averages 37.5 sacks per year as a line coach? Fine by me. I don't know anything about him.

Posted this on the other DL coach thread:

Bills Website:

Quote:
20th Year in NFL/3rd with the Bills

COACHING EXPERIENCE: Continues to stress ball pursuit and a penetrating pass-rushing style for the Bills’ defensive line ... Under Kollar, DE Aaron Schobel earned his second Pro Bowl selection following the 2007 season as he led the team with six forced fumbles and tied for the team-lead with eight tackles for loss and set a career-high with 96 tackles; Four of the team’s leaders in tackles-for-loss came on the defensive line (Schobel, DE Chris Kelsay (8), DT Kyle Williams (7) and DT John McCargo (7)) … In his first season with the Bills in 2006, Buffalo’s defensive ends ranked tied for fourth in the NFL with 26.5 sacks … helped Schobel, Kelsay and DE Ryan Denney all post career seasons. Schobel recorded a career-high 14.0 sacks and was voted a starter in the Pro Bowl. He added 95 tackles and led the team with three forced fumbles. Denney recorded career highs with 72 tackles and 6.0 sacks. Kelsay added career highs with 88 tackles and 5.5 sacks. … as the defensive line coach with the St. Louis Rams from 2001-05 his unit quickly emerged as one of the toughest and most relentless front fours in the NFL…in his five years coaching the D-line for St. Louis, he helped DE Leonard Little emerge as a premier sack artist, with 57 sacks in five seasons....prior to his time with the Rams, Kollar served as the defensive line coach for the Atlanta Falcons from 1990-00…in 1998, the Falcons' defensive line tied for the NFL lead by giving up only six rushing touchdowns and set a team record by allowing an average of 75.2 rushing yards as Atlanta won the NFC Championship and earned a trip to Super Bowl XXXIII…began his coaching career as assistant defensive line/special teams coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1984...moved to the University of Illinois to coach the defensive line and special teams (1985-87), then served in the same capacity at Purdue University (1988-89). PLAYING EXPERIENCE: Was a defensive lineman for eight seasons in the NFL... a first-round selection (23rd overall) by Cincinnati in the 1974 NFL draft and played three seasons for the Bengals…moved to Tampa Bay, where he started at every position on the line from 1977-81…played in the 1979 NFC Championship game against the Rams.

PERSONAL: Played college football at Montana State, where he earned an all-America selection and was named the most valuable player in the Senior Bowl…Kollar and his wife, Jan, have two sons, Chad and Clint.
http://www.kffl.com/player/15023/NFL

Supposedly his full name is William Wallace Kollar...anybody want to wear kilts and get painted up if our D-Line becomes a dominant force? Kidding...sort-of

Wow! Kubes really worked his butt off interviewing!

All I can say is THANK GAWD for some sort of football talk!! I certainly can't comment one way or another on this guy, I know NADDA about position coaches. I just hope Mario, Demeco, and Co. respect him. That's what matters.

Another non impressive hire. Just went through his 2003-2008 rushing D's and his highest ranking was 20th in 2003.

Does Kubiak not understand that if he fails to improve the D and miss the playoffs yet again, he is going to get canned?

Eh..Well...that's that. He looks like he's done good with some DLs. Maybe their defense has sucked but his DLs have been good. He should go well with Frank Bush.

Had we hired him to be the DC that would piss me off, but since he seems to get career numbers across the board from the Dline players and the fact that he is aggressive, Im fine with it.
