Buffalo Hires Cincinnati's Quinn To Be New Head Coach

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Jeff Quinn's will be Buffalo's new football coach following the departure of Turner Gill.

Quinn's hiring was announced by the school Sunday, but he will remain as Cincinnati's interim coach until after the Bearcats play Florida in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1.

With 27 years of college coaching experience, Quinn returns to the Mid-American Conference, where he previously served as offensive coordinator at Central Michigan.

The Bulls program was much improved during the four years Gill spent there before leaving last week to take over the top job at Kansas.

Gill went 20-30 at Buffalo and led the Bulls to their first conference championship and bowl game last year.
