Dolphins hiring Bills national scout Marvin Allen as assistant G.M.

The Dolphins are hiring Bills national scout Marvin Allen as their assistant General Manager under Chris Grier, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Allen, 53, worked with Grier and presumptive head coach Brian Flores while in New England. Grier worked in the Patriots’ scouting department from 1994-2000, while Allen was an area scout for the Patriots from 1993-2008.

Flores, the defensive play-caller for the Patriots, will join the team as head coach when New England’s season ends.

Grier took over his current duties earlier this month.

Allen spent the past two seasons with the Bills after four season as the director of college scouting for the Chiefs.

He has scouted for 25 years.

A little more info from 'Mando.

Start with the fact general manager Chris Grier is already remaking parts of his personnel department. The team has hired Buffalo Bills national scout Marvin Allen, a league source confirmed Sunday, to be Miami’s assistant GM.

And before you say, “The Bills aren’t good,” understand they have been drafting every bit as well as if not better than Miami the last couple of years and Allen worked for years in the New England Patriots personnel department and then went to Kansas City with general manager Scott Pioli. And then he went to Atlanta.

And New England is good.

And Kansas City is good.

And Atlanta went to the Super Bowl a couple of years ago.

Allen, who has been friends with Grier and his father Bobby Grier for years, will bring to Miami an expertise it has lacked.

“He would be their best evaluator day one,” one prominent NFL personnel man said Sunday.

“This is a very good move,” another personnel man said, “but they’ve got to move some folks out down there, too. There’s dead weight in that team’s personnel department. And some guys are going to be gone.”

Sounds like there are some well calculated plans and moves happening vs big names and all talk. Let's hope the results can follow
