2 NFL General Managers Are From Buffalo
There is always a Western New York connection it seems, right?
You may have already known this, but during the Buffalo Bills game yesterday we learned that not one, but TWO General Managers in the National Football League graduated from St. Francis High School in Buffalo.
1992 graduate David Caldwell was introduced as the Jacksonville Jaguars’ general manager and Tom Telesco ('90) became the youngest GM in San Diego Chargers history. Both got their starts in the business through connections with respected former NFL executive Bill Polian, whose son Brian is nw the head coach at the University of Nevada', according to NewYorkSportsWriter.org.
UPDATE: Jaguars General Manager, David Caldwell was fired yesterday after 10 seasons with Jacksonville after a 1 - 10 record so far in 2020. (No word yet on whether our old pal, Doug Marrone will still have a job as their head coach.
Of course, you probably remember Bill Polian, the former Buffalo Bills General Manager who overlooked the Bills during their 4-year Super Bowl era.
Now, that's not the only NFL connection that Buffalo has. Brian Daboll, the Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator is also a graduate of St. Francis. Kyle Smith, who graduated in 2002 and is working his way up to general manager status, currently being Washington's vice president of player personnel.
It's amazing how many people have come out of one high school working for one of the most high-profile businesses ever.
