Bills Interview Trey Brown For GM Role


UPDATE:On Tuesday, May 9, the Bills named Brandon Beane as their new general manager.

The Buffalo Bills announced on Saturday that they interviewed director of college scouting Trey Brown for their general manager position.

Brown was named to his current post almost exactly a year ago (May 11). The Eagles hired Brown to be a West Coast area scout in 2013, a role he held for two years before being promoted to assistant director of college scouting in 2015.

Fans might know Brown for his role in the Microsoft Surface tablet ads.

Prior to joining the Eagles, Brown was with the New England Patriots for three seasons - two as the team's West Coast area scout.

One of the nation's top defensive backs at UCLA, Brown was a second-team Walter Camp All-America selection and a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award in 2007. He signed with the Chicago Bears as a rookie free agent in 2008, and finished his professional career with the UFL's New York Sentinels in 2009.

Brown's father, Theotis, played running back at UCLA and suited up for the Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks, and St. Louis Cardinals.

Following the NFL Draft last Sunday, the Bills dismissed general manager Doug Whaley and cleaned out the entire scouting department. Former Eagles defensive coordinator Sean McDermott was named the Bills' head coach in January. Brown is the third candidate who the Bills have officially announced as interviewing for the general manager job.
