Bills promote national scout Nix to GM
Buffalo Bills national scout Buddy Nix is the team’s new general
manager, the first move in owner Ralph Wilson’s effort to revamp
his front office.
Nix was introduced at a news conference Thursday as the Bills
(5-10) prepare to close their season hosting Indianapolis (14-1) on
Sunday. Nix fills a void after Marv Levy stepped down as general
manager following the 2007 season. Chief operating officer Russ
Brandon had been handling the GM duties.
The 70-year-old Nix had been out of football after retiring in
2008 following a stint as the San Diego Chargers assistant
GM/director of player personnel.
He came out of retirement to work for Buffalo this past year
after serving as the team’s area scout from 1993-2000.
