Bills Fire Doug Whaley As General Manager 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Apr 30, 2017 2:52 pm

The Buffalo Bills have fired Doug Whaley as general manager.

The Bills were 30-34 in Whaley's four seasons as general manager as they continue their 17-year playoff drought.

"After a thorough review of our football operations over the past several months, Kim [Pegula] and I informed Doug this morning that we will be moving in a new direction," Bills co-owner Terry Pegula said in a statement. "We have enjoyed working with Doug. He is a good person and we want to thank him for his work and commitment to our football team. This was my decision. It was not an easy decision but I believe it's the right one for the future of the Buffalo Bills. Our search for a new general manager will begin immediately."

Sean McDermott began having more power after he was hired as head coach in January.

The Bills also fired their entire scouting staff.
