Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson said today that head coach Dick Jauron will return in 2009.

Despite signing a contract extension during the season, Jauron was on the hot seat because of the Bills' late-season collapse. But Wilson released the following statement today:

"It is well known that I share many of the fans' dissatisfaction with our offensive game management. That being said, I believe that this team, at this time, is better served by continuity in the coaching staff rather than a disruptive overhaul. The team played hard all year long and there are many positives to build on. This is not to say that we will be complacent. In my discussions with Dick and our senior football people the issues are recognized and I am confident they will be addressed."

Jauron has gone 7-9 in each of his three seasons in Buffalo.
