Peers pick Bills assistant April as NFL's best special teams coach

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills assistant Bobby April was named the NFL special teams coach of the year in a vote by his peers.

April received the honor -- his second in the last four seasons -- at an awards ceremony in Reno, Nev., on Tuesday night.

In April's fifth season in Buffalo, the Bills' special teams finished in the top 10 in four categories, including a league-leading 15.5 yards per punt return. The Bills' special teams also scored three touchdowns, including punter Brian Moorman's pass to defensive end Ryan Denney on a fake field-goal attempt in the season-opening victory over the Seattle Seahawks.
