The St. Louis Rams have named Billy Devaney Executive Vice President of Player Personnel, the team announced Saturday.
"Billy brings a wealth of NFL experience to the Rams in the areas of player personnel and scouting," Rams president of football operations/general manager Jay Zygmunt said in a statement. "He has proven to be an excellent evaluator of players throughout his career in the NFL and will work with coach Linehan in making final decisions on all personnel matters."
Devaney has more than 20 years of NFL scouting and player personnel experience, including three Super Bowls and 19 playoff games. He last served as the assistant general manager for the Atlanta Falcons from 2006-2007, where he provided senior management oversight of player personnel, scouting and football operations.
Devaney spent 11 seasons (1990-2000) as the director of player personnel for the San Diego Chargers. He was responsible for player acquisitions, including the draft and free agent signings. The Chargers reached their only Super Bowl to date, Super Bowl XXIX, in 1994 during Devaney's time with the team.
