BUFFALO, NY – University at Buffalo head football coach Jeff Quinn announced today that defensive coordinator William Inge has accepted a coaching position with the NFL's Buffalo Bills.
Inge, who has served as the Bulls' defensive coordinator and linebackers coach since Quinn arrived at UB two years ago, served in the NFL minority coaching program this past year and worked part of the Bills' training camp. He will be the assistant defensive line coach for new defensive coordinator Dave Wannstedt.
Inge's 2010 defense was among the Bulls' best in their 13-year association with Division I-A football. This past year his tutelage of linebacker Khalil Mack resulted in the sophomore earning Sports Illustrated honorable mention All-America honors.
"Coach Inge was contacted by the Buffalo Bills about joining their staff and has accepted the opportunity presented to him, which I completely understand," said Quinn. "He set the example of loyalty in this profession, he was loyal to this staff, the players and the program and did a tremendous job for us.
"I'd like to thank Coach Inge for everything he has done for the University at Buffalo and wish him and his family all the best," said Quinn. "We are actively seeking his replacement to coach our defense and I'm certain that we will have outstanding candidates to do so."
