The Buffalo Bills have hired Brandon Beane as their new general manager. Beane replaces Doug Whaley, who was fired by the team the day after the 2017 NFL Draft.
In addition to firing Whaley, the Bills also fired their entire scouting department. Beane and new head coach Sean McDermott will begin working on putting a new scouting department together.
Like McDermott, Beane comes to the Bills from the Carolina Panthers. McDermott was previously their defensive coordinator.
Beane was their assistant GM. He was en route to Buffalo on Monday and will not leave now.
Beane will be signed through the 2021 season. McDermott also has a contract go through the 2021 season, as well.
At this time, it is not clear who will have final say over the roster moves. Despite Whaley being in the room for the NFL Draft, the team went with McDermott’s picks.
Since they worked together before, it would take little time for the two to get reacquainted with each other.
Beane was not the only candidate for the job despite being the favorite from the get-go. The Bulls also interviewed Green Bay Packers director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst, Philadelphia Eagles director of college scouting Trey Brown and Houston Texans director of player personnel Brian Gaine for the job.
