Whaley will oversee the Bills' pro personnel department and assist new general manager Buddy Nix in all football-related administrative duties, along with college talent evaluation.

Whaley joins the Bills after spending 11 years with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the last 10 as the team's pro scouting coordinator.

The Steel City native played safety and linebacker at the University of Pittsburgh from 1990 to 1993, and he started his NFL career in 1995 as an assistant in the Steelers' pro personnel department. He was an East Coast scout for the Seattle Seahawks from 1996 to 1998.

The Steelers replaced Whaley on Wednesday by hiring Brandon Hunt to be their pro scouting director. Hunt joined the Steelers in 2005, spent two seasons as an intern in their player personnel department, then became a pro scout for the Houston Texans in 2007.
