ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — The Buffalo Bills have fired offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

The team announced the move in an email released on Friday, a day after Buffalo fell to 0-2 following a 37-31 loss to the New York Jets.

Roman was in his second season as coordinator, and was hired by Rex Ryan when he took over the team in January 2015.

Running backs coach Anthony Lynn will take over as coordinator.

The Bills’ offense is off to sputtering start. It managed just 160 yards — Buffalo’s lowest total in a decade — in a season-opening 13-7 loss at Baltimore on Sunday. The Bills had 307 yards offense against the Jets, but managed just 16 first downs.

Buffalo’s running attack has particularly struggled a year after leading the NFL with 2,432 yards rushing.
