DL coach Pepper Johnson, LBs coach Fred Pagac agree to terms with Bills


Buffalo added a pair of coaches to its staff, as Pepper Johnson (Defensive Line) and Fred Pagac (Linebackers) agreed to terms with the club on Friday night.

A five-time Super Bowl champion, Johnson will enter his 15th year coaching in the NFL in 2014. Johnson has spent the past 14 seasons working for the New England Patriots, serving in a variety of roles including eight seasons (2004-11) as the team's defensive line coach. During his 13-year playing career, Johnson was a part of two championship teams and has been a member of three championship teams since joining New England's coaching staff in 2000.


A veteran coach with more than a decade of experience on both the collegiate and professional coaching levels, Pagac (pronounced PUG-itch) comes to Buffalo after spending the past eight seasons with the Minnesota Vikings. During his time with the Vikings, Pagac helped lead the Vikings' defense to four top 10 finishes in total defense including three straight top 10 finishes from 2008-10.
