    Bring Back Bobby!

    Need to cut Ligashesky and bring back Bobby!

    Bobby April, one of the league's top special teams coaches, has exercised a clause in his contract that makes him a free agent on Tuesday, according to a source.

    April had two years remaining on his contract and was informed Monday by the Buffalo Bills that he and the other assistant coaches have the right to pursue other jobs as the organization searches for a new coach.

    Since the mid-season firing of Dick Jauron, April has been trying to decide what to do with the final years of his contract.

    The contract gives him 14 days after the season to make a decision. Knowing he will be in demand, April decided to inform the team he was leaving.

    April, 56, also serves as the assistant head coach of the Bills. April has won special team awards in two of the past six years. He also has coached with the Steelers, Falcons, Saints and Rams.

    April was the only assistant not hired originally by Jauron.

    The Bills announced in a statement that the team's current staff remains under contract but the coaches have been informed that their obligations for this season have been completed, and they now "have the opportunity to seek positions elsewhere." The release said their status then will be determined by the Bills' next head coach.

    Despite how the Bills phrased the release, a person familiar with the team's decisions told The Associated Press that the staff was fired.

    The Bills closed their 50th season by missing the playoffs for a 10th straight year, capping a decade in which they enjoyed only one winning season -- a 9-7 finish in 2004

    I like Bobby April. He left basically due to a clash with Cowher. He was our ST coach in 1995 when we went to the SB. I like it.
    Cleveland Browns suck!

    Our special teams were beastly under April; although from what I remember some of this units have strugged over the years. If he's still got it, then hell yeah bring him in for an interview. I just love seeing him all fired up on the sidelines when he was a Steeler.

    Our ST were always good when April was the coach, he's just got that knack for getting the most out of his players. If there's ever a unit that needs a complete overhaul of every process, it's our coverage teams. I definitely wouldn't mind seeing him back in Pittsburgh.
