The Buffalo Bills have made an addition to their coaching staff under Sean McDermott, hiring Bobby Johnson as their new offensive line coach. 

Johnson has nine years of coaching experience in the National Football League and was most recently with the Indianapolis Colts staff as an assistant to offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo. Indianapolis had two rookie linemen make the All-Pro team, while allowing just 18 sacks on the season in 2018, which was the best in the NFL. 

Colts head coach Frank Reich let go of DeGuglielmo, as DeGuglielmo was a coach that was not brought in by Reich. Josh McDaniels, who famously backed out after accepting the Colts head coaching position last offseason, was the coach who brought in DeGuglielmo and Johnson. With the offensive line coaches dismissed in Indianapolis, Buffalo made the move to bring in Johnson to the staff. 

Johnson replaces former Bills offensive line coach Juan Castillo, who was let go after the end of the 2018 season. This will be Johnson's second stint with the Bills. He was in Buffalo in 2010 as an assistant line coach.
