PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan)- Upper St. Clair native Doug Whaley has worked his way up the NFL front office ladder. After working with the Pittsburgh Steelers in their scouting department, Whaley joined the Buffalo Bills front office in 2010.

On Thursday, Whaley was promoted to General Manager. Bob Pompeani asked Whaley how much of the Steelers philosophy will carry over to his role with the Bills, and Whaley said a lot.

“I think that the main thing I learned is it’s a full organizational effort. The organization has to be committed to accountability and hard work,” Whaley said.

Whaley added that a singular focus and goal is to be able to compete for championships, and that’s what’s starting to build in Buffalo.

“Anybody in this field is competitive, so you’ve got to take that competitive nature and harness it and realize that losing is unacceptable,” Whaley said.

He added that “every day that you walk into this building to try to get better and accomplish that goal of a championship.”
