Coach Aaron Kromer, the offensive coach for the Buffalo Bills has been suspended for the first six games of the regular season without pay. The suspension was announced Sunday night by Russ Brandon, the President of the Bills saying that it was for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
The action comes after the Kromer was allegedly accused of pushing a kid on the ground and punching him the face last month over 2 boys using his beach chairs. According to the Walton County Sherrif’s Office, Kromer had also threatened to kill one of the boy’s family if he reported to the police the incident.
Two days after Kromer was arrested, he was placed on paid leave but will be joining the team for training camp. His 6 games suspension will begin on Set. 7, 2015 and end on October 18, 2015.
Even though the Florida prosecutor dropped the charges of battery for causing bodily harm, Russ Brandon felt that all NFL and Club employees are held to a higher standard.
Several players who bet on the NFL believe that this suspension will not greatly affect their betting on the Bills as Kromer is a recent hired from January as part of Rex Ryan’s new staff.
