Former Bills Defensive Coordinator Lands New Job Ahead of 2023 NFL Season

Buffalo Bills' defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier is taking a break for the 2023 NFL season, but he won't be idle.

Frazier won't coach but will provide TV analysis. Frazier will be on NFL Network shows, including NFL GameDay Live. 

Frazier, a former Super Bowl champion cornerback for the Chicago Bears, joins NFL Network with 30+ years of coaching experience.

Frazier appeared on NFL Network last month. He'll join five new analysts in the studio: Gerald McCoy, Chase Daniel, Pep Hamilton, David Shaw, and Robert Turbin.

Frazier's participation in the NFL's Coach Accelerator program suggests he will not return to the Bills as head coach.

Frazier visited the Packers, Commanders, and Giants after attending the NFL's Coach Accelerator program. 

He has connections with the Giants' head coach and general manager from his time in Buffalo.

According to Jay Skurski, visiting different teams during the offseason is not something a coach would do if they plan to return to their old role. 

The Bills wouldn't be okay with Frazier spending time with other teams if they knew he'd come back in 2024.

At 64 years old, it may be difficult for him to become a head coach again after taking a year off from football, especially since teams tend to hire younger coaches.
