In what has become a scary trend over the last month, the Buffalo Bills have fired offensive coordinator Turk Schonert.

Schonert becomes the third coordinator fired this week as Chan Gailey (Chiefs) and Jeff Jagodzinski (Buccaneers) were let go within 72 hours of each other.

Quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt will take over and head coach Dick Jauron will address the situation later today.
