Orchard Park, NY (Sports Network) - The Buffalo Bills have named Doug Whaley
their new general manager.
Whaley, the Bills' assistant general manager since February 2010, will take
over for Buddy Nix, who stepped down on Monday and decided to remain with the
organization as a special assistant.
"Doug has been involved in every level of player personnel throughout his
career and he will lead our efforts in re-establishing a winning tradition for
this organization and our great fans," said Bills president and CEO Russ
Brandon. "Doug is a passionate and committed leader who will work tirelessly
with his department to build a team our fans and all of Western New York will
be proud of heading into the future."
Whaley spent 11 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, including his last 10 as
the team's pro scouting coordinator, before joining the Bills. He was also a
scout for the Seattle Seahawks for three years.
