Bills hire Morgan to take over as player personnel director
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills have hired Dan Morgan to take over as their player personnel director.
Morgan joins the Bills after spending the previous seven seasons working his way up the Seattle Seahawks’ scouting ranks. He most recently served as Seattle’s pro personnel director in overseeing the team’s pro and advance scouting duties.
He replaces Brian Gaine, who left the Bills after just one season to return to Houston in January and become Texans general manager.
Morgan is a former NFL linebacker, who spent his entire seven-year NFL career playing for the Carolina Panthers from 2001-07. That makes him familiar with Bills general manager Brandon Beane, who spent 19 years with the Panthers before being hired by Buffalo a year ago.
