  • Bills officially name Doug Whaley new GM

    Bills named Doug Whaley their new general manager.
    40-year-old Whaley was groomed for the job for the past three years, working as 73-year-old Buddy Nix's right hand man. A safety and linebacker at the University of Pittsburgh, Whaley broke into the league as a Steelers scout in 1995 and came to Buffalo highly recommended by Kevin Colbert. With the Bills, Whaley is credited with acquiring RG Kraig Urbik and TE Scott Chandler off waivers, in addition to wielding a "heavy hand" in drafting Stephon Gilmore last year, and E.J. Manuel this year. He also played a leading role in the search committee that wound up hiring Doug Marrone. With a fresh-faced coaching staff, new GM, and franchise quarterback hopeful, things appear to be looking up in Buffalo.
