Buddy Nix Steps Down As Buffalo Bills General Manager
(ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.) -- Buddy Nix announced on Monday he is stepping down as general manager of the Buffalo Bills, but will stay on with the club as a special assistant.
The 73-year-old Nix took over as GM in 2010 after Bills president Russ Brandon decided to hand over the position to focus on the team’s business operations.
During Nix’s tenure, the Bills went 16-32 including consecutive 6-10 seasons under former head coach Chan Gailey, who was let go at the end of last season. In his last major acts as general manager, Nix hired new coach Doug Marrone from Syracuse and drafted quarterback E.J. Manuel out of Florida State
The team did not immediately name a replacement for Nix.
