Five things you should know about the quarterbacks coach of the New Buffalo Bills and OC Joe Brady


Following their internal fill-ins for two defensive coaching positions last week, the Buffalo Bills hired an outside candidate to instruct their quarterback. Ronald Curry was named the team’s new quarterbacks coach on Wednesday.


Curry leaves the New Orleans Saints after eight seasons to join the Bills. Curry was reportedly offered the position of wide receivers coach by the new Saints administration, but he chose to join Buffalo instead.


Five things about Buffalo’s new quarterbacks coach are listed below.


worked throughout the majority of his coaching career under Sean Payton


Before joining the San Francisco 49ers as an offensive assistant in 2014–2015, Curry coached high school football for three seasons. From 2016 to 2023, Curry would reside in New Orleans following his dismissal from San Francisco. Sean Payton was Curry’s coach from 2016 to 2021. He served as Payton’s offensive assistant in New Orleans from 2016 to 2017, the wide receivers coach from 2018 to 2020, and the quarterbacks coach from 2021 to 2021.


Curry added passing game coordinator to his role of quarterbacks coach after Payton left the Saints (2022–2023).


worked as a coach for Joe Brady


Curry worked as Joe Brady’s coach in New Orleans from 2017 to 2018. In 2017, they were both offensive assistants. In 2018, Brady held that position as Curry became the wide receivers coach. That Curry came to Buffalo was probably influenced by a reunion with Brady.


dual-sport student at UNC


Curry was one of the most sought-after athletes in collegiate athletics right out of high school. Curry was regarded as one of the top 10 college basketball and football recruits. Before committing to North Carolina, Curry gave verbal commitment to Virginia.


Curry ended his collegiate football career as the all-time leader at UNC in passing yards and overall yards. During his collegiate career, Curry was also named the MVP of two bowl games: the 1998 Las Vegas Bowl and the 2001 Peach Bowl. This was remarkable in light of the fact that he experienced three different offensive coordinators while attending Chapel Hill and missed time due to injuries.


Curry was a basketball player for UNC as well. He had a reputation for playing defense. Julius Peppers joined Curry as a two-sport athlete at UNC.


formerly a player in the NFL


The Oakland Raiders of the time selected Curry with the 235th overall pick in the seventh round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Curry was selected by the Raiders to play quarterback, but by 2003, wide receiver had become his new position. Curry’s receiving totals skyrocketed in 2004 when he grabbed 50 passes for 679 yards and six touchdowns, while in 2003, he only caught five passes for 31 yards. In his tenure with the Raiders, he would go on to receive more than 700 yards twice (2006, 2007). After spending 2008 with the Raiders, Curry tried to get on the rosters of the Detroit Lions and the St. Louis Rams in 2009.
