Dan Morgan looks set to follow other high-ranking former Panthers staffers east. Mike Garafolo of NFL.com reports (on Twitter) the Seahawks’ director of pro personnel will join the Bills as a high-ranking member of Brandon Beane‘s front office.
Jay Skurski of the Buffalo News reports this is not quite a done deal yet; the Bills plan to interview Morgan. Though, this may be a formality.
Morgan’s been a Seahawks scout and exec for several years. He will fill the role vacated by Brian Gaine‘s departure to Houston, per Garafolo. Gaine served as Buffalo’s VP of player personnel last year under Beane before returning to Houston as GM.
A former first-round pick, Morgan played seven seasons with the Panthers, from 2001-07, before breaking into the scouting side of the game. He’s worked under Scott Fitterer and Trent Kirchner in Seattle and will now make a significant step forward in his executive career.
The 39-year-old exec began his tenure with the Seahawks as an intern before working as a scout. The Seahawks then promoted him to assistant director of pro personnel. Beane was with the Panthers throughout Morgan’s career as their starting middle linebacker.
