Bills hire Ken Dorsey as quarterbacks coach, name Chad Hall wide receivers coach


Bills head coach Sean McDermott rounded out his coaching staff Saturday hiring Ken Dorsey as quarterbacks coach and naming Chad Hall receivers coach.

Dorsey, 37, was most recently an assistant athletic director at Florida International University. His familiarity with McDermott comes in the four seasons they coached together on the Carolina Panthers staff under Ron Rivera.

From 2013-2017, Dorsey coached Cam Newton and Derek Anderson among others as quarterbacks coach in Carolina.

Dorsey had a six-year career in the NFL as a reserve quarterback with San Francisco (2003-2005) and Cleveland (2006-2008). He also spent a season in the CFL with Toronto.

The former QB was also a highly decorated college signal caller. Dorsey was a two-time NCAA quarterback of the year, a Heisman Trophy finalist and was instrumental in leading the Miami Hurricanes to the 2001 National Championship.

While at Miami, Dorsey compiled a record of 38-2 as a starter, just one of a host of school records the former QB still holds.

Dorsey replaces former quarterbacks coach David Culley, who recently made the move to the Baltimore Ravens as assistant head coach/receivers coach/passing game coordinator.



Chad Hall has served as an offensive assistant for the Bills for each of the past two seasons, serving mainly as an assistant for the receivers. His work left a very good impression as he was promoted to receivers coach.

Hall worked extensively with young receivers like Robert Foster and Cam Phillips this past season.

A former NFL receiver for four seasons, Hall played for the Philadelphia, San Francisco and Kansas City organizations.

Hall replaces Terry Robiskie, who left to become running backs coach with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
