The Bills got better on Sunday. And it was at the Dolphins’ expense.
Buffalo hired away Joe Schoen, who was Miami’s director of player personnel. Schoen, who had been with the Dolphins since 2008, will serve as the Bills’ assistant general manager under Brandon Beane. The two worked together in Carolina a decade ago.
Schoen, a graduate of DePauw University in Indiana, got his start in football in 2000 as an intern in the Panthers’ ticket office. He later made the move to football operations and then got a full-time job in scouting.
The Dolphins ultimately hired him as a national scout. Schoen was later promoted first to assistant director of college scouting and then in 2014 to director of player personnel.
Schoen now reunites with Beane, whom the Bills hired as their general manager last week. The Dolphins could have blocked the move but instead allowed Schoen to leave for a job he wanted with a division rival.
