Happy Thanksgiving! Oh, and Buffalo extends Quinn’s contract

It’s Thanksgiving, so cut us some slack with this early-morning MACtion.

Speaking of which, Happy Turkey Day one and y’all!  We here at CFT hope your breasts are plump and your giblets perky as we all scoff in the general direction of gluttony being one of the Seven Deadly Sins, at least for a day.

Anyway, where were we?  Oh yeah, back to the headline.

In a press release Wednesday, Buffalo announced that it had reached an agreement with head football coach Jeff Quinn on a contract extension.  The new five-year agreement will keep Quinn with the Bulls through the 2017 season.

“Jeff and his staff have poured their hearts and souls into building this program, and we are both excited and optimistic about our future under their leadership,” White said.  “To be sure, we feel that the foundation is in place to have a breakout season in 2013.”

In his third season with the Bulls after replacing Turner Gill, Quinn has compiled a 9-26 record.

Nine to the good, 26 to the bad morphing into a contract extension?  Someone should be a little more thankful than others as they plow through the pumpkin pie…

    Quinn certainly needs to be very thankful. If Whitge is so excited about the upcoming 2013 season, it would seem he would give Quinn a one year extension, rather than 5, but Santa Claus is making some early deliveries this year!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you JT and to all!

    Hmm, the ad extended a 3 win a year coach, then said he was excited about 2013, in buffalo. Only one explanation, obviously this ad believes in the Mayan prophesy.

    Stop by this site at least two or three times a day. I’m thankful that it exists. Happy Thanksgiving to one and all (and that includes Texas fans!). Have a great day.

    Who else would want to live in that cold, cold, city? I hear the people are super nice, but it’s the weather stupid!

    I’d give Quinn one more year. He seems like a good coach. But he needs recruits. Gill was able to attract talent.

    A five year contract for a 9 – 26 record? Only in Buffalo.

    Be thankful coach. It was definitely a gift!!
