Bills General Manager Nix Steps Down After Three Years

Buffalo Bills General Manager Buddy Nix stepped down after three National Football League seasons, becoming a special assistant to the team.

Nix, 73, said he made the decision three weeks after the NFL draft because he felt it was the “right time.” The Bills didn’t say who would succeed him.

“By the ‘right time,’ I mean I think we have a good young roster, an excellent head coach with a good staff, and it’s time to let someone else handle these responsibilities and move forward together,” Nix said in a statement on the team’s website.

The Bills went 6-10 in each of the last two seasons and 4-12 in 2010, giving the team a 16-32 record with Nix as GM. Nix also was responsible for hiring coach Chan Gailey, who was fired after last season. Syracuse University’s Doug Marrone was brought in to be the team’s new coach in January.

Buffalo released starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in March, signing free agent Kevin Kolb and selecting passer E.J. Manuel out of Florida State University with the 16th pick of last month’s draft.
