Bills defensive line coach Eric Washington hired as Bears defensive coordinator 

The Buffalo Bills have their first coaching staff departure. 

Eric Washington, the Bills assistant coach and defensive line coach, is leaving to join the Chicago Bears as the defensive coordinator. 


The Bills hired Washington in 2020 as the defensive line coach, and he was awarded the assistant head coach title in 2023 after being a senior defensive assistant in 2022.

Washington, 54, was an assistant to Sean McDermott for six years in Carolina (2011-16) and four years in Buffalo (2020-23).
