Tim Krumrie brings 27 years of NFL experience as a player and coach.

As a University of Wisconsin Hall of Famer, Krumrie was a three-time All-Big Ten defensive tackle for the Badgers. He still holds the school records for most career solo tackles with 276 and most career tackles by a defensive lineman with 444. He was also named defensive MVP of the Badgers 1982 Independence Bowl. Krumrie was also on the Wisconsin wrestling team in 1979 and 1980 and finished fifth at the Big Ten Championships as a sophomore heavyweight.

A 10th-round pick by the Bengals in the 1983 NFL Draft, Krumrie never missed a game in his 12-year career aside from the strike-shortened 1987 campaign. The two-time Pro Bowler appeared in 193 career games (166 starts), including five postseason starts and was part of the Bengals Super Bowl XXIII team. Krumrie was selected for the Pro Bowl in 1987 and 1988. He concluded his playing career in 1994 after compiling 1,017 tackles (700 solo), 34.5 sacks (-238.0 yards), 13 fumble recoveries, 11 forced fumbles and 10 passes defended.

Krumrie had the opportunity to play for and work with one of the NFL’s most respected defensive coaches Dick LeBeau. Before joining the Buffalo Bills staff in 2003, Krumrie spent eight seasons (1995-2002) as a defensive line coach for the Bengals. He helped the Bengals establish a club record with 48 sacks in 2001.
