SPORTS DIGEST | Ex-Bills GM Whaley takes job with NFLPA
Former Buffalo Bills general manager Doug Whaley is taking over as the NFL Players Association’s director of college scouting.
Whaley will oversee the recruitment, evaluation and selection of draft-eligible prospects to compete at the annual NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. He replaces Tony Softli, who left to become the Alliance of American Football’s scouting director.
Whaley was hired Wednesday, a little over a year after being fired by the Bills. He spent eight seasons in Buffalo, including four as GM.
