By Matt Johnson

After spending the past season away from football, former Buffalo Bills general manager Doug Whaley is now involved with the game again, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.

Whaley was named the director of college scouting for the NFL Player Association’s Collegiate Bowl. In that role, he will lead their recruitment and evaluation for the player selection process.

The bowl game, which is held in Pasadena, California, is held for draft-eligible seniors to help further prepare draft prospects and help players develop their football skills and better understand the business side of the game.

According to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, more than 200 NFL scouts, player personnel staff and front office executives attend the annual game.

Whaley served as Buffalo’s GM from May 2013 to April 2017.
