Jahmile Addae is leaving Miami for a similar job in the NFL.

Jonathan Jones, an NFL insider for CBS Sports, reported that the Buffalo Bills are set to hire Addae as their cornerbacks coach. Addae was in his second season as a member of the Miami staff as secondary coach. The Hurricanes’ pass defense ranked 55th in the country last season after it allowed 216 yards per game, but was tied for 24th in touchdowns allowed with 16.

When Addae was hired, coach Mario Cristobal described him this way: “Jahmile Addae is a gamechanger for our staff. His units rank among the nation’s top-performing units every year. He has championship experience, he is one of the nation’s top recruiters, and he has fostered a culture of mental and physical toughness in the secondary at every stop of his career. Coach Addae is a tremendous addition to our program, and I know he will make his impact felt on our defensive identity.”

Addae previously spent the 2021 season in a similar capacity at Georgia on a national championship team. And he was ranked the second-best recruiter in the country during the 2022 cycle by 247Sports as he led a secondary that ranked among the nation’s elite in nearly every category.

Addae earlier played and coached at West Virginia, and his coaching career included stops at Cincinnati and Minnesota.

His NFL career included stops with his hometown Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2006 and the end of the season with the Indianapolis Colts.
