Old Bills Defensive Coordinator Gets New Job Before 2023 NFL Season

The '85 Bears legend is not taking a year off after the Buffalo Bills revealed that defensive coordinator and assistant head coach Leslie Frazier would leave in 2023.

Frazier will provide expert insight on TV, not on the field. The NFL Network announced on September 5 that Frazier will appear on NFL GameDay Live and other studio shows.

Frazier, a former Super Bowl champion Chicago Bears cornerback, adds 30 years of teaching experience to NFL Network.

Frazier appeared on NFL Network last month during preseason. Gerald McCoy, Chase Daniel, Pep Hamilton, David Shaw, Robert, and Turbin will join him as studio analysts.

After his one-year sabbatical, Frazier's participation in the NFL's Coach Accelerator program in late May indicated that he was committed to returning to the NFL as a head coach,

and his offseason activities strongly suggest that he will not return to Orchard Park.

NFL expert Jay Skurski noted that visiting multiple teams over the summer "is not something a coach with any intention of returning to his old role would do."

 If they knew Frazier would return in 2024, the Bills wouldn't let him play for other teams.
