Bills owner Ralph Wilson shed some light on what it was that got Nix the nod.

After interviewing both inside and outside the organization Wilson and CEO Russ Brandon whittled their candidate list down to two in-house finalists. Wilson explained what got Nix the job in the end.

“We made the decision that Buddy had a little more management experience,” said Wilson. “He had been the assistant GM in San Diego for several years. So we selected Buddy.”

Nix also has a deep background in coaching having been one at the high school and college level for over 30 years.
