Former Buffalo Bills quarterback J.P. Losman will serve as a coaching intern under Clemson's Dabo Swinney in 2017, ESPN.com's Adam Schefter reported Wednesday.

The 36-year-old Losman last played in the NFL for the Miami Dolphins in 2011.

Buffalo selected Losman with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2004 NFL draft out of Tulane.

That draft saw Eli Manning, Philip Rivers and Ben Roethlisberger go in the first round as well, but Losman failed to reach their heights.

In five seasons with the Bills, Losman went just 10-23 as a starter with 6,271 passing yards, 33 touchdowns and 34 interceptions.

Losman will join a Clemson coaching staff that is searching for a firm answer at quarterback following the departure of Deshaun Watson.

The California native will have a front-row seat for the quarterback competition among Kelly Bryant, Zerrick Cooper and Hunter Johnson.
