The Buffalo Bills poached yet another member of the Alabama Crimson Tide coaching staff, adding Shea Tierney to the fold.
At this point, it is more like the Buffalo Crimson Tide, as Tierney is the third coach the National Football League franchise has scooped from Alabama. He will be an offensive assistant for the Bills.
Tierney has spent the past two seasons on Nick Saban‘s Alabama staff as an offensive analyst. He has previous NFL experience, having worked with the Philadelphia Eagles for the four years prior to his time in Alabama. With the current Super Bowl champs, Tierney was an intern.
Before Tierney, William Vlachos, who was most recently an analyst for the Crimson Tide, left the program to join the Bills. Both guys are actually following ex-Alabama offensive coordinator Brian Daboll to the National Football League franchise.
Vlachos will be taking on the role of offensive assistant with the Bills. He’s likely a familiar name to SEC fanatics. In 2009 and 2011, he helped Alabama win national titles as a key starter. He was also on the Crimson Tide staff as a graduate assistant dating back to 2013.
Daboll, who spent a single season with the Crimson Tide, was named the new offensive coordinator for Buffalo in the middle of January.
