The Buffalo Bills announced Sunday that GM Doug Whaley had been relieved of his duties.
Whaley joined the Bills as an assistant general manager in 2010 and was bumped to general manager in 2013. The team finished with one winning season (2014) over his four-year tenure in Buffalo.
“The decision was made now because this is the end of the scouting year,” owner Terry Pegula said. “We ran a process and as a result of that process after the draft we made the decision.”
The move is a bit strange because it came right after the NFL Draft. But NFL Network reported that head coach Sean McDermott played a bigger role in picking than Whaley.
