Throughout Coach McNally’s Career, Jim was one of the most highly regarded position coaches in the League. Coach McNally made an immediate impact on every team when hired to coach their offensive line.
With the Bills in 2005, McNally helped second-year tackle Jason Peters develop into a starter…Peters, an undrafted free agent and former tight end at Arkansas, started the final nine games of the season at right tackle…the line paved the way for Willis McGahee’s career-high 1,247 yards. With the Bills in 2004, McNally tutored an offensive line that limited opponents to 38 sacks, the lowest number allowed by a Bills team since 1998… Also with the Bills, McNally’s line also paved the way for Willis McGahee to rush for 1,128 yards and 13 touchdowns in 11 starts.
Prior to retiring from the NFL with the Bills, McNally coached the offensive line for the New York Giants (1999-03) and helped maintain offensive line success with little personnel continuity on the line during his tenure. In 2000, McNally guided an offensive line with three new players to a successful season which culminated in the Giants’ rise to the NFC Championship.
Prior to joining the Giants, McNally coached the offensive line for the Carolina Panthers (1995-98) and the Cincinnati Bengals (1980-94). In McNally’s time at Carolina, the Panthers advanced to the NFC Championship game in only the teams second season of existence.
