ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WHEC) — It looks like the Bills band may be sticking together after all.

Multiple reports indicate that Bills Offensive Coordinator Brian Daboll will not be taking one of the open head coaching vacancies this offseason.

After the Chargers hired someone else to be their head coach, Daboll will reportedly be staying with the Bills.

There still are a few teams without head coaches, but Daboll isn't directly tied to those teams, and he's got a lot on his plate right now.

The Bills are in the AFC championship game and Monday Daboll said that he's pouring his entire focus into the job that he has, rather than the job he might get.

"I've been fortunate to be in this league for 20 years and this is the ninth AFC Championship that I've been in, I don't take them for granted," Daboll said. "They're hard to get to. They're hard to get to, they're hard to compete in, if you're not focused on what you need to be focused on then I don't think you're a professional."

"At the end of the day we're happy to have Brian with us for as long as he's been with us and hopefully moving forward as well," McDermott said. "He's a valuable member of our staff and I think Brian's very qualified to become a head coach."

Daboll is locked in on preparing the Bills for Sunday's game. He says his biggest thrill comes from seeing his players succeed.

"This is a special place for me, this is a special place for my family, privileged to be working here in my hometown, but again, the guys that are on the field that come to practice, that are banged up and bruised up and lay it on the line every week, those are the guys that you're happy for," Daboll said.

If you're curious as to why Brian Daboll was such a hot target for head coaching jobs, here's a look at the numbers.

The Bills have about 100 more yards per game on offense from year one to year three under Daboll.

They've also nearly doubled their scoring output in that time, and he developed Josh Allen from a project into an MVP candidate.
