Completed Deal: A $66.7 million contract has been agreed to between the Miami and Dallas.

The Buffalo Bills made several additions to their coaching staff on Wednesday, February 7. On the defensive side of the ball, Jahmile Addae was hired as the team’s new cornerbacks coach. Addae’s new role with Buffalo marks his first NFL coaching opportunity.

Prior to joining the Bills, Addae most recently spent time in NCAA football with the Miami Hurricanes as their secondary coach, and earlier with the Georgia Bulldogs as the team’s defensive backs coach.

Getzenberg also tweeted that “The Bills and defensive backs/passing game coordinator John Butler mutually agreed to part ways, per sources. Puts this news in further context.”

As a player, Jahmile Addae was a four-year starter at cornerback for the West Virginia Mountaineers. After participating in the 2006 Senior Bowl and then the NFL Scouting Combine that same year, Addae went undrafted — signing on as a free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His time in Florida came to an end in-season, at which point he finished the 2007 regular season with the Indianapolis Colts.

After Addae’s rookie season in the NFL, he made the decision to transition to coaching. As a teacher from the sideline and on the gridiron during the week, Addae has carved out an enduring legacy as an NCAA football coach and also within the front offices of collegiate football programs.

Addae’s roots in coaching began with West Virginia in 2007, where he was a graduate assistant. From 2008-2009, Addae headed north to Michigan in the same role as graduate assistant. Following his time in Michigan, Addae was hired as director of player development with the Cincinnati Bearcats (2010). Addae then took over as running backs coach with the Bearcats (2011-2012).
