Bills fire VP of Pro Personnel John Guy

New, comments

Buffalo Bills fans wanted to see changes at the top of the organization. After Buddy Nix was named GM and Chan Gailey introduced as head coach, the changes continued late Wednesday night, as the Bills announced that they'd relieved VP of Pro Personnel John Guy of his duties.

Guy, who joined the Bills in 2001 under former GM Tom Donahoe, was promoted to VP of Pro Personnel in early 2008, right after Marv Levy left the organization. Guy reportedly interviewed for the Bills' GM position this past December, eventually losing out to Nix. Now, he's out of a job.

This is a move that Bills fans have longed for for years; Guy, long in charge of the team's free agent scouting, has been the target of fan angst after a long succession of unproductive free agent signings by the Bills.

VP of College Scouting Tom Modrak, who also joined the Bills upon Donahoe's arrival, is still employed by the organization. Time will tell if that's still the case once this spring's NFL Draft has been completed.
