Russ Brandon named Bills team president; coach search begins
Buffalo, NY, United States (4E Sports) – Chief Executive Officer Russ Brandon has been named the team president of the Buffalo Bills, assuming the post vacated by 94-year-old owner Ralph Wilson.
Brandon’s appointment as the top honcho of the Bills front office, gives him the privilege to run the franchise in totality with any restrictions or limitations.
Brandon said being appointed as the CEO of the franchise is a dream come true for the son of a telephone company employee.
“My dad climbed telephone poles for 30 years. This is my dream job. The opportunity is incredible,” Brandon added.
Meanwhile, Buddy Nix will reportedly continue to assume the role of general manager until April’s NFL Entry Draft, where he will be replaced by pro personnel director Dough Whaley.
Brandon will take the lead role in the search for their new head coach. Former Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt and current cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton appear to be the front runners for the Bills head coaching job.
