According to Buffalo Bills beat writer Matthew Fairburn. Gerald Dixon is leaving his position as a pro scout with the Bills and headed to the XFL. Dixson worked for Senior Vice President Of Football Operations of the XFL Doug Whaley. Whaley is the former general manager of the Buffalo Bills.
The Bills are making some changes to their scouting staff. I’m told Gerald Dixon, who had been a pro scout, is heading to the XFL. Asil Mulbah has been promoted to pro scout. The Bills hired RJ Webb as a scouting assistant, which was Mulbah’s previous role.— Matthew Fairburn (@MatthewFairburn) May 1, 2019
Dixon spent the past four years as a pro scout with the Buffalo Bills. Before that, he was assistant and cornerbacks coach for The Citadel.
He was a starter for all fours years at the University of Alabama with a brief NFL stint in 2004 with the Bills and Detroit Lions. Dixon later went on to play in NFL Europe and spent two seasons in the CFL with the Edmonton Eskimos.
We are not sure yet what his official title will be. But it is safe to assume he will be working with Doug Whaley.
