Buffalo Bills fans still don't know who the next head coach of their favorite franchise is going to be, but Giants fans know who it's not going to be.  Perry Fewell—the man who assumed the role of interim head coach when Buffalo fired Dick Jauron in week 10—is Tom Coughlin's new defensive coordinator .

Fewell had served in that role for Buffalo from the start of the 2006 season up until Jauron's dismissal.  After Jauron led the Bills to just three wins in their first nine games, Fewell took their reigns and earned three wins in the final seven games.  He was fired on Jan. 4, but told he could still be a candidate for the job. 

Instead, he'll head up a Giants defense that disappointed in 2009 under the guidance of Bill Sheridan.
