Buddy Nix Steps Down As Buffalo Bills GM


After just over three years as the Buffalo Bills General manager, Buddy Nix has stepped down. 

Nix will remain with the team in a new role as special assistant.

According to ESPN, Nix said:

“I’ve made this decision to step away from the general manager’s position because I feel it is the right time. By the ‘right time’ I mean I think we have a good young roster, an excellent head coach [Doug Marrone] with a good staff, and it’s time to let someone else handle these responsibilities and move forward together.”

With Nix stepping down, it stands to reason that Assistant GM Doug Whaley could be in line for the GM post after serving as the direct understudy to Nix the past three years. Nix has given indication that he hired Whaley as his eventual replacement.

Nix, 73, was a scout for the Bills from 1993-2000 before working as the assistant GM/director of player personnel for the San Diego Chargers. Nix rejoined the Bills organization in January of 2009 and was promoted to general manager later that year. The Bills were 16-32 in three full seasons with Nix as their general manager.
