Bills | Schonert critical of Jauron

Mon, 07 Sep 2009 05:52:57 -0700

ESPN.com reports former Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Turk Schonert told a Buffalo television station he was fired because the team's offense was not simple enough for head coach Dick Jauron. "He wants a 'Pop Warner' offense," Schonert said in a phone interview with WIVB. "He limited me in formations, and limited me in plays. He's been on my back all offseason." Schonert added, "He (Jauron) told me the offense wasn't simple enough for him. We had too many formations, too many plays. I didn't simplify it to his liking."

Bills | Offense struggles early Thursday

Thu, 05 Jun 2008 12:12:43 -0700

Chris Brown, of BuffaloBills.com, reports the Buffalo Bills offense struggled early during the team's offseason workout Thursday, June 5. Offensive coordinator Turk Schonert was frustrated with the offense after the team did not line up properly on only the fifth play from scrimmage in 11-on-11 drills. "We've got to know formation," Schonert yelled. A few plays later, which was in a no-huddle offense, a snap went over QB Trent Edwards' head and Schonert told the offense to huddle up every play because the offense can't handle the no-huddle portion of the offense.

Thu, 27 Dec 2007 12:09:57 -0800

Mark Gaughan, of The Buffalo News, reports Buffalo Bills WR Lee Evans said he would be in favor of the team promoting quarterbacks coach Turk Schonert to offensive coordinator because Schonert would likely keep the same offensive system. "Ideally you want the same system so you don't have to start from a complete ground zero. Even when a new coordinator comes in you still have to get used to how he calls games and things like that. From a system standpoint, being in the same system would go a long way," Evans said.
