ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Jets are expected to hire former Bills OC Rick Dennison as their run-game coordinator/OL coach.

Dennison was let go shortly after Buffalo was ousted from the postseason. The Bills ran well under Dennison in 2017, finishing sixth in the league in rushing yards per game (126.1). Of course, he won't have LeSean McCoy at his disposal in East Rutherford.

Bills fired OC Rick Dennison.

Dennison lasted just one season as the Bills' offensive play-caller under first-year coach Sean McDermott. The Bills were 29th in total yards under Dennison, 22nd in points per game, and 31st in passing. Buffalo did manage a sixth-place finish in rushing offense, but it wasn't enough to save Dennison his job. A Gary Kubiak disciple, Dennison has been involved in a ton of great rushing offenses. And it's hard to fault him for the passing struggles when there were no weapons to speak of, though Dennison very much could have done a better job designing an offense to cater to Tyrod Taylor's strengths. The Bills will likely usher in a new quarterback to go along with whoever they choose as offensive coordinator.

Bills hired Rick Dennison as offensive coordinator.

Dennison was the Broncos' coordinator the past two seasons, but wasn't retained following Gary Kubiak's resignation. Dennison also coordinated the Texans' offense under Kubiak from 2010-13. It's a decent, if unimaginative, hire for a Bills team that isn't setting the world ablaze with its new coaching staff. Dennison's addition doesn't really speak to Tyrod Taylor's future one way or the other, though he was Taylor's QBs coach for the Ravens in 2014 when Taylor was still a backup. Like Kubiak, Dennison is a run-first, play-action oriented play-caller.

Broncos fired OC Rick Dennison, OL coach Clancy Barone, and TEs coach Brian Pariani.

New coach Vance Joseph will hire his own OC, who will then pick his assistants. Dennison has long been Gary Kubiak's right-hand man, and with Kubiak now stepping away from the game, it's unclear what Dennison will do. It's possible he could join Kyle Shanahan's staff if Shanahan gets the 49ers' job.

Broncos will hire Rick Dennison as their new offensive coordinator.

Gary Kubiak is bringing Dennison with him once again. This time, it's to talent-laden Denver where he'll institute a version of the Kubiak/Shanahan scheme that will likely be tweaked to fit Peyton Manning. Dennison played for the Broncos from 1982-90 and was a coach in Denver from 1995-2009 under Mike Shanahan. He's been with Kubiak for stops in Houston and Baltimore.

Ravens QB coach Rick Dennison is considered the frontrunner for the Broncos' offensive coordinator job.

Dennison was Gary Kubiak's offensive coordinator in Houston and coordinated the Broncos' offense from 2006-08. An offensive line guru, Dennison has extensive experience in Kubiak's zone-blocking scheme. The Ravens also have interest in Dennison as a potential in-house replacement for Kubiak.
