Bills DL coach Mike Waufle announces retirement


It was an impressive 20-year career in the NFL, but Mike Waufle's 2017 campaign with the Bills will be his last. The veteran defensive line coach announced his retirement Monday.

A Hornell, New York native, Waufle returned to his roots in 2017 with the Bills after 19 previous seasons in the NFL, with stops with the Giants, Rams and two separate stints with the Raiders.

The highlight of Waufle's pro-coaching career has to be the Super Bowl title he won in 2007 when as defensive line coach for the New York Giants, his group tallied five sacks on Tom Brady in the upset of the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. The Giants also led the league in sacks that season.

Prior to his pro coaching career, Waufle spent 19 years in the college ranks.

Waufle is also a U.S. Marine Corps veteran after he served four years following his high school graduation.

The team also announced that assistant defensive line coach Bill Teerlinck has been promoted to serve as the Bills new defensive line coach. Teerlinck previously spent three seasons as the defensive line coach at the University of Nevada (2014-2016).

Aaron Whitecotton has been named assistant defensive line coach after serving in 2017 as the administrative assistant to the head coach.
