Dorsey is set to join McDermott's staff after spending last season at Florida International University serving as the assistant director of athletics. However, Dorsey and McDermott have history going back to their days with the Carolina Panthers. Dorsey worked for the Panthers from 2011-2017 as a scout and quarterbacks coach, working with players that included Cam Newton and Derek Anderson. Dorsey also had a six-year NFL career as a quarterback, spending a few years in San Francisco and Cleveland.

Hall remains with the Bills, but has accepted a promotion to become the wide receivers coach. Hall has been on the Bills' staff for the last two seasons as an offensive assistant, mainly working with receivers. Hall worked closely with Robert Foster and Cam Phillips last season, and will replace Terry Robiske, who is now the running backs coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Similar to Dorsey, Hall spent some time in the NFL, playing for Philadelphia, San Francisco and Kansas City over four seasons.
