ORCHARD PARK, New York (Reuters) - The Buffalo Bills wiped the slate clean on Monday by firing interim coach Perry Fewell and his staff following the team's 6-10 season.
Although Fewell and his staff were told they could seek employment elsewhere, the Bills said in a statement that Fewell remained a candidate for the head coach position.
Fewell was promoted from defensive coordinator to lead the team after former head coach Dick Jauron was sacked in November.
Under Fewell, the Bills were 3-4 including a 30-7 victory in the regular season finale against playoff-bound Indianapolis Colts, who rested many of their starting players.
Last month, the Bills named Buddy Nix as their new general manager. The Bills finished bottom of the AFC East.
