The man who is expected to be named President Trump's new White House Communications Director is a huge Buffalo Bills backer.

Michael Dubke, the founder of conservative public relations group Crossroads Media, is also on the advisory board of the Buffalo Bills fan alliance and describes himself as a Buffalo Bills season ticket holder. 

He is a founding partner of the Black Rock Group, "a strategic communications and public affairs firm based in Alexandria, Va., that is named after the Black Rock neighborhood of Buffalo," according to his biography on the Bills fan site. 

CNN reported that Dubke is expected to be named the communications chief as early as Friday. He founded Crossroads Media, a Republican consulting firm that gained prominence during the 2008 presidential campaign. 

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has been serving as both the press secretary and communications director for the new administration, according to CNN. The jobs are typically held by two staffers. 

Dubke is a graduate of Hamilton College.
