[ESPN.com] The Kansas City Chiefs have hired Atlanta Falcons pro scout Ray Farmer as their new director of pro scouting.
Farmer, 33, spent the past four seasons with the Falcons working in pro personnel under director Les Snead.
The addition of Farmer likely concludes the offseason shuffling in the Kansas City front office. One of the NFL’s most stable franchises, the Chiefs did not lose any management personnel, but some members of the front office changed roles and titles.
Farmer ostensibly replaces Billy Kuharich, who on Feb. 10 was promoted to vice president of player personnel, after three seasons as vice president of pro personnel. Also during the offseason, the Chiefs promoted longtime front office member Dennis Thum from assistant general manager to executive vice president/chief operating officer.
