Ravens secondary coach Leslie Frazier will be Bills' defensive coordinator

Ravens secondary coach Leslie Frazier will be Bills' defensive coordinator

The Ravens are losing a solid defensive coach as the NFL coaching carousel continues to spin.

Ravens secondary coach Leslie Frazier will become the new defensive coordinator for the Bills, as first reported by ESPN. Getting Frazier is a smart move by new Bills head coach Sean McDermott, who worked with Frazier when both were on the Eagles’ staff from 1999-2002.

Frazier’s work with the Ravens secondary in 2016 was a key reason for that unit’s improvement. Frazier worked extensively with rookie cornerback Tavon Young, who became an immediate contributor. During games, Frazier’s experience in the coaching box upstairs made defensive coordinator Dean Pees comfortable enough to coach from the sidelines, where he could communicate directly with players.

Frazier was a head coach with the Vikings (2011-13), and he has also been a defensive coordinator with the Bengals, Buccaneers and Vikings. Seeing Frazier get another opportunity to become a coordinator is hardly a surprise.
