Buddy Nix is stepping down as the general manager of the Buffalo Bills. Under Nix the Bills have gone 16-32 over the last three seasons.
“I’ve made the decision to step away as GM because I feel it’s the right time,” Nix said in a statement. “Good young roster with excellent head coach and staff.”
While the Bills have called it a decision on Nix’s behalf USA Today’s Mike Garofolo characterizes Nix as being “pushed away” despite the team promoting it as a voluntary move.
Assistant GM Doug Whaley is widely expected to take Nix’s job.
The biggest question is why Nix or the Bills waited until after the draft to make the move.
