The Buffalo Bills named Dan Morgan as their director of player personnel, the team announced on Friday.

Morgan, a former linebacker for the Carolina Panthers, will take the place of Brian Gaine, who left the team to become the general manager of the Houston Texans.

The 39-year-old Morgan arrives in Buffalo after serving as director of pro personnel with the Seattle Seahawks. Morgan was hired by general manager Brandon Beane, who was with the Panthers during the linebacker's playing days.

"First thing we were looking for was culture fit," said Beane, per the team's official website. "I was in Carolina when we drafted Dan as a player and he would be a 'Bills blue' as our kind of guy. As a player he was always prepared, worked hard, did everything. He worked his way up from the bottom. He didn't get placed into a seat because of his status as a former player.

"Sometimes that's warranted, but Dan was a scouting intern with the Seattle Seahawks in 2010 and worked his way up to a Director of Pro Scouting. That's not an easy transition to go from the field to a grunt in our business. It's humbling and he did it and he's risen to Director of Pro (Scouting)."

Morgan spent all seven seasons of his NFL career with Carolina after the team selected him in the first round (No. 11 overall) in the 2001 NFL Draft.

A Pro Bowl selection in 2004, Morgan started 59 games and registered 7.0 sacks, five interceptions and 386 tackles.
