In what seemed like promising news for Buffalo Bills fans—the firing of coach Dick Jauron and multiple statements made by longtime owner Ralph Wilson Jr. that the team would undergo a complete overhaul—the Bills are set to announce Buddy Nix, current scouting director, as their new general manager.
Multiple sources have confirmed the report, including ESPN.com.
Once again, Wilson & Co. have decided to promote from within instead of thoroughly conducting a search for player personnel from throughout the world of football.
According to reports, current GM Russ Brandon has been moved to president and CEO. In addition, vice president of pro personnel John Guy and vice president of college scouting Tom Modrak were also considered for the position.
Nix was hired as the Bills' director of scouting earlier this year.
The Bills will make the official announcement in a press conference from One Bills Drive, slated for 2:30 p.m. EST.
