Buffalo Bills Fire GM Doug Whaley

The Buffalo Bills have made a change at the top of the organization, but it’s a move that everyone saw coming.
On Sunday morning, the Bills announced general manager Doug Whaley has officially been fired from his position. The writing was on the wall all offseason, with head coach Sean McDermott reportedly having his issues with the general manager.
That led to Bills owner Terry Pegula giving McDermott control of the 2017 NFL Draft, before ultimately sending Whaley on his way.
“After a thorough review of our football operations over the past several months, Kim and I informed Doug this morning that we will be moving in a new direction,” 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.”
While there is no word on who could replace Whaley, one name to watch is Carolina Panthers assistant general manager Brandon Beane, who has obvious connections to McDermott.
Before becoming the Bills head coach earlier this year, McDermott spent six years serving as defensive coordinator for Carolina.
