PITTSFORD, N.Y. (WIVB) - Mike Pettine and Nathaniel Hackett will have far different vantage points during game-days this season.
Pettine, the Bills's Defensive Coordinator, will make his calls from the sidelines. Hackett, the Offensive Coordinator, will call plays from the booth.
"I always felt it was a problem in New York when I called them and a team was up-tempo, that it had to go through somebody else, so you had that couple seconds where it had to get called twice," said Pettine.
"I was brought here to call plays, and that's the one time, those couple hours, that I'm supposed to be calm and I'm supposed to be relaxed," said Hackett.
Their next chance to put those plans into action will be this Friday night, with the second preseason game at home against the Vikings.
