Ken Dorsey was fired by the Buffalo Bills during the middle of the 2023 NFL season. He was not out of work for long.
The Cleveland Browns have now hired Dorsey as their offensive coordinator. Dorsey replaces another former Bills connection, Alex Van Pelt, who was fired by Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski at the end of the 2023 season.
Upon accepting the position and being introduced, Dorsey reflected on his time in Buffalo. It does not appear he’s holding any grudges, but did note the decision to move on from him was Sean McDermott’s.
“The head coach decided to make a change and that’s something that I’ve turned the page on,” Dorsey said via video conference. “I’m really excited to be here and more focused on this opportunity than what happened there.”
Dorsey did admit he has taken time to think back on what he could do better, though.
“It gave me time to go back and look at, Here’s what we’re doing schematically, and how we’re utilizing our personnel, and really evaluate what we’re doing,” Dorsey said. “There’s always things that maybe I’d do a little bit differently moving forward.”
Upon dismissing Dorsey, McDermott had noted it was simply “time for a change.”
The Bills named Joe Brady their interim offensive coordinator after dismissing Dorsey. Brady had the interim tag removed last week.
