It is a sad day for the Buffalo Bills family and Bills Mafia as we learned about the passing of former coach Chuck Dickerson.

Dickerson was an assistant coach under Marv Levy with the Buffalo Bills from 1987 through 1991. He was the Buffalo Bills defensive line coach in two Super Bowls: Super Bowl XXV and Super Bowl XXVI.

Dickerson was very outspoken during his time as a Buffalo Bills assistant coach. One of the biggest moments came in the Bills' second Super Bowl when he made fun of the Washington offensive lineman who was nicknamed "The Hogs"


Before becoming a coach, Dickerson played two years of college football at the University of Florida and would play for a brief time in the AFL with Cleveland and Boston.

Dickerson would end up using his "talking" skills for several years as an outspoken member of the local media who covered the Buffalo Bills.

According to his online obituary, Dickerson is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Chris and Karen Dickerson; granddaughters Katherine (and her husband, Brackston), Elizabeth (and her husband, Joseph), Hannah, and Madeline. He was blessed to have spent time with his great-grandson, Cameron.

Dickerson was 86 years old and passed away after a short battle with an illness.

For those who want to send flowers, Dickerson had asked that instead, you make a donation in his name to the Orphans of the Storm animal shelter near his hometown in Deerfield, Illinois.
