Beane and Bills coach Sean McDermott worked together the past six seasons while McDermott was the Panthers' defensive coordinator. They are also known to be philosophically aligned when it comes to putting together an NFL roster.
The Bills have also interviewed Houston Texans director of player personnel Brian Gaine and Philadelphia Eagles director of college scouting Trey Brown.
