Bills fire personnel chief John Guy

At a time Buffalo Bills fans could use some good news, they received a little.

The team announced late Wednesday night they've fired vice president of pro personnel John Guy.

A day earlier, they introduced Chan Gailey as their new head coach to a tepid fan response.

Guy's dismissal should improve the mood somewhat. Bills fans have been hopeful the Bills would remove Guy and college scouting chief Tom Modrak after 10 straight years of missing the playoffs. Guy became the club's director of pro personnel in 2001 and was promoted to vice president in 2008.

No official word on whether the Bills intend to keep Modrak.
