05:14 PM ET 05.16 | It was a move that was widely anticipated after Buddy Nix stepped down from his general manager post on Monday. So when the Bills named Doug Whaley the 12th general manager in franchise history Thursday morning it came as little surprise. ???It is with great pleasure to name Doug Whaley to the position of General Manager,??? said Bills President and CEO Russ Brandon. ???Doug has been involved in every level of player personnel throughout his career and he will lead our efforts in re-establishing a winning tradition for this organization and our great fans.??? ???Doug is a passionate and committed leader who will work tirelessly with his department to build a team our fans and all of Western New York will be proud of heading into the future.??? Whaley, 40, who has seen his role expand almost annually since being originally hired as Assistant GM/Director of Pro Personnel three years ago, will now run the personnel side of the Bills franchise.
