The Buffalo Bills are making sure Sean McDermott stays with the organization for a long time. Buffalo announced a multiyear contract extension for McDermott Wednesday, but years and financial terms were not disclosed. 

“Sean’s leadership on and off the field has been nothing but genuine and transparent, qualities we appreciate as owners,” said Bills president Kim Pegula in a statement released by the team. “He is the same great person to us, the players and everyone across all our organizations. We will never forget how impressed we were during his first interview. Sean’s attention to detail was apparent back then and his process driven approach has brought great stability to our organization. We are happy to extend his contract and keep him in Western New York for many years to come.”

McDermott has brought success to a Bills franchise that has fallen on hard times this century. The Bills coach snapped an 18-year postseason drought — which was the longest in the NFL — in his first season as the head coach in 2017 and has compiled a 25-23 record in his three seasons at the helm with two playoff appearances.

McDermott’s initial deal lasted through the 2021 season, so a multiyear extension will keep him in Buffalo through at least 2023.
