Bills to name Joe Schoen assistant G.M.

The Bills recently hired a General Manager. They’re now hiring an assistant G.M.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Dolphins director of player personnel Joe Schoen will become the No. 2 to Brandon Beane in Buffalo.

The Dolphins could have blocked the hire. As the source explained it, executive V.P. of football operations Mike Tannenbaum decided to allow the move in order to foster an atmosphere of upward mobility in Miami, with quality work resulting in a reward — even if the reward comes from a division rival.

Schoen became Miami’s director of player personnel three years ago. Before that, he served as the team’s assistant director of college scouting. He worked as a national scout five years before that.

Schoen will next be in the mix for a G.M. job of his own, since the folks with the assistant G.M. titles typically end up in the conversation when those jobs inevitably become available.

  1. There you have it, Beane’s right hand man who is experienced in scouting & player talent evaluation. Go Bills!

  2. So basically the Fins just handed over detailed intel on every player on their roster, to a division rival. Good for Schoen but if I’m a Fins fan I’m not real excited about that M.O.

  3. It’s May and Bills fans are talkin proud!

    Once the season starts though, they’ll be talkin about next year, again.

  4. I’m guessing terry and the real owner went thru the process to create an environment whereas their recent hires will equal their skill set, knowledge and expertise… Only seems fitting.

  5. Another Stephen Ross blunder. A follow up to the Tannenboob blunder. Keep em’ coming boss man.

  6. Billswillnevermovecuznobodywantsthem, its May and your team won’t win in June, July, August, September, October, November, and December, when their season will end just like the last 17.

    to think fans of the dolphins, bills or jets,
    can actually catch the loaded pats now or
    in the future…smh


    Maybe not this year…but trust me…it’s coming…and soon!! Brady is already getting mail from AARP…

  8. If the Bills and Sabres continue their losing ways, it will not be the owners fault. He is trying and if he does not see improvement from his new hires, they will be gone sooner than later.

    Their cheating culture doesn’t play with other franchises who care about the games integrity.
