Scout Allen leav­ing Bills, to be Mi­ami as­sis­tant GM

The Buffalo News - - NFL -

The Buf­falo Bills and Mi­ami Dol­phins con­tinue to make front-of­fice swaps.

The most re­cent move is a sub­trac­tion for the Bills, with na­tional scout Marvin Allen leav­ing the team to be­come Mi­ami’s as­sis­tant gen­eral man­ager, ac­cord­ing to a re­port Sun­day from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Allen has been with the Bills for the last two sea­sons, work­ing as a na­tional scout. Prior to com­ing to Buf­falo, he spent four sea­sons as the Kansas City Chiefs’ di­rec­tor of col­lege scout­ing. Allen has also worked in the front of­fices of the Fal­cons and Pa­tri­ots. He played four sea­sons as a run­ning back for New Eng­land. He was an 11th-round draft pick in 1988.

The Dol­phins poach­ing Allen is a bit of pay­back after the Bills brought both Joe Schoen and Den­nis Hickey to Buf­falo in the past two years. Schoen, the Bills’ as­sis­tant gen­eral man­ager, served as the Dol­phins’ di­rec­tor of player per­son­nel be­fore com­ing to Buf­falo. Hickey, the Dol­phins’ for­mer gen­eral man­ager, works for the Bills as a se­nior col­lege scout.
