According to the Buffalo News, there have rumors floating around that the Bills will not only fire head coach Chan Gailey, but also part ways with general manager Buddy Nix.
Rumors were swirling in NFL circles Saturday that the Buffalo Bills would clean house and fire not only head coach Chan Gailey but General Manager Buddy Nix as well.
However, high ranking Bills sources insisted the decision on the team’s top two football men remained, as always, with owner Ralph C. Wilson Jr. and that Wilson had yet to tell any of his employees in Western New York of his verdict.
Nix, contacted Saturday night, told The News he had not been given any indication of any change in his job status.
There is widespread expectation among the organization that Gailey will be ousted due to the Bills’ disappointing season, which concludes today against the New York Jets at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The Bills (5-10) have clinched last place in the AFC East.
After giving quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick a contract extension last season before he was able to prove himself over a long period, Nix may have put himself in a place where the Bills’ only choice is to fire him.
