Canadian Vince Magri has left his role as assistant general manager for the Toronto Argonauts to become a pro scout with the Buffalo Bills.

Magri spent over a decade with the Argos and earned elevation to assistant general manager in 2022. He previously spent time as the team’s director of scouting, director of Canadian scouting, and video coordinator, his first position with the Double Blue after he was hired in 2013. He’s won Grey Cup rings with Toronto in 2017 and 2022.

A former offensive lineman at McMaster University, Magri remained in football after graduation, spending time with the University of Toronto as the Varsity Blues assistant offensive line coach, video coordinator and recruiter.

He returned to McMaster as an offensive assistant coach, video coordinator and recruiter, helping the Mauraders to the Vanier Cup.

Magri will join fellow Canadian Curtis Rukavina who the Bills promoted to co-director of pro scouting. Rukavina previously spent time with Magri on the Argonauts, and he was promoted to director of player personnel in 2016.

The Bills went 11-6 in 2023, winning the AFC East championship for the fourth consecutive season. Buffalo made it to the AFC Divisional round, but lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 27-24.
