The Buffalo Bills have signed assistant general manager Doug Whaley to a contract extension.
It is expected that Whaley will take over as the team’s general manager once current-general manager Buddy Nix steps aside.
"We are very pleased with the structure of our football operation and look forward to working with Buddy, Doug and the entire staff for many years to come,” said Bills’ President and CEO Russ Brandon. “. As we have stated previously, there is no timetable for the transition. Our focus continues to be on building the foundation for a winning program."
Whaley joined the Bills in 2010, serving as assistant general manager and director of pro personnel. He was promoted to director of player personnel and oversaw the team’s college scouts.
