Lou Saban Named Head Coach of AFL's Buffalo Bills

Jan. 18, 1962 - Lou Saban (pictured), who coached the Boston Patriots until last October, was named head coach today of the Buffalo Bills of the American Football League. He replaces Garrard (Buster) Ramsey. Saban, who became director of player personnel for the Bills after his dismissal by the Patriots, signed a one-year contract believed to be around $20,000. The 40-year-old Saban is a former defensive captain of the Cleveland Browns of the NFL. Ramsey was dismissed Jan. 4 after disappointing seasons during the league’s first two years. The Bills finished the past season in the Eastern Division cellar with six victories and eight losses.
