Ralph Wilson Jr’s widow takes over as controlling owner of the Bills

The Buffalo Bills announced on Thursday that Ralph Wilson Jr.’s widow Mary Wilson has taken over as the controlling owner of the franchise.

A process will be established at an appropriate time for the sale of the franchise. This process will ensure that the club complies and is faithful to NFL rules and to its obligations to New York State and Erie County. We plan to have detailed discussions with the NFL, the State and County, and others as we determine the timing and structure of any sales process.

Mary Wilson said, “I have complete confidence in Russ Brandon, our President and CEO, to continue his duties of running the organization. General Manager Doug Whaley and Head Coach Doug Marrone remain empowered by Russ to run the football operation.”
