In 1986, when Marv Levy was chosen to direct the fortunes of the Buffalo Bills, he brought with him more than 30 years of coaching experience. In 1987, his first full season with the Bills, the team returned to respectability with a 7-8 record and were in the playoff hunt throughout most of the season.

The following season the team posted a 12-4 record and won their first of six AFC Eastern Division titles. With his high-powered "no-huddle" offense, Levy went on to set a new standard for NFL coaches as he led his AFC championship team to four consecutive Super Bowl appearances.

He was named NFL Coach of the Year in 1988 and AFC Coach of the Year in 1988, 1993 and 1995.
