The Buffalo Bills continued to add to their coaching staff Monday, hiring Thad Bogardus as a defensive quality control coach.
Bogardus served as a defensive graduate assistant at Ball State for the past two seasons. The Connecticut native attended Elon University, where he was the assistant video coordinator for the Division-I FCS program.
Ball State (and former Elon) head coach Pete Lembo played with Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz at Georgetown in the late-1980s.
