Panthers hire Dan Morgan as assistant general manager

Morgan was hired by the Bills in 2018 and served as the Director of Player Personnel

The Carolina Panthers have hired Buffalo Bills' Director of Player Personnel, Dan Morgan for their assistant general manager position, the team announced on Saturday.

Morgan has been an instrumental piece of the Bills front office since joining them in 2018 after previously serving as Director of Pro Personnel with the Seattle Seahawks, where he worked with current Panthers general manager Scott Fitterer.

Morgan spent seven seasons with the Panthers as a player after they made him the 11th overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft. He went on to start 59 games for the organization, was named an All-Pro in 2004, and recorded 18 tackles in their Super Bowl XXXVIII loss to the New England Patriots.

After keeping his front office entirely intact throughout the offseason, Bills general manager Brandon Beane will now be looking to replace Morgan as his top personnel man. However, Beane will have no shortage of in-house candidates, as well as those interested from the outside.
