The Buffalo Bills have hired Joe Danna as their new safeties coach, the team announced Thursday morning. Danna served as the Houston Texans safeties coach in the 2022 season and comes to Buffalo with 15 years of NFL coaching experience.
Prior to his one-year stint in Houston, Danna was a part of the Jacksonville Jaguars coaching staff for four seasons, two years as the safeties coach (2019-20) and two years as the assistant secondary coach (2017-18). He also spent time as the DB coach for the New York Jets (2015-16) and the Atlanta Falcons (2012-14).
Throughout his professional tenure, Danna has coached several high-level NFL players, including CB Jalen Ramsey, CB A.J. Bouye, CB D.J. Hayden and CB Darrelle Revis.
The Bills had one of the top secondary groups in the league in 2022, despite dealing with injuries to key players throughout the season. The group allowed an average of six yards per pass attempt (5th in NFL) and the 9th fewest passing TDs to opponents (21).
In 2022, the Texans defense allowed the 10th fewest passing yards per game (209.3), and tied the Jets for the fewest passing TDs allowed (15) in the regular season.
