ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WKBW) — Buffalo Bills Head coach Sean McDermott isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon.

The team announced Wednesday McDermott has agreed to a multi-year contract extension to stay with the organization. The terms of the extension were not disclosed by the team.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the extension is for six years, tying him to the Bills through 2025.

“Sean’s leadership on and off the field has been nothing but nothing but genuine and transparent, qualities we appreciate as owners,” the Pegulas said in a statement. “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, 46, has led the Bills to two playoff appearances in three seasons as the head coach. While with the Bills, McDermott has a 25-23 record. He was set to enter the fourth year of his five-year contract this season, after signing with the Bills in 2017. He becomes the first head coach to earn a second contract with the Bills since Dick Jauron in 2009.
