Eagles’ Brown Interviews for Bills GM Job
PHILADELPHIA (973espn.com) - Microsoft may have introduced Trey Brown to the general public but it's his work as the Eagles Director of College Scouting that has gotten the 32-year-old rising personnel star noticed in the NFL.
Brown interviewed for the Buffalo Bills' vacant general manager position on Saturday, the third candidate Buffalo has taken a look at since jettisoning Doug Whaley after the draft.
Brown is in the running with Carolina assistant GM Brandon Beane, the presumed leader in the clubhouse due to his prior relationship with new Bills head coach Sean McDermott, and Texans Director of Player Personnel Brian Gaine.
Brown, a former quarterback at UCLA, has spent the past four seasons in Philadelphia and also has a stint with New England on his resume, which is always a positive in today's NFL. He started with the Eagles as a west coast scout before rising through the ranks and heading the entire college scouting department.
He's perhaps best known for starring in a Microsoft Surface commercial, which ran constantly on NFL telecasts throughout the 2016 season.
