ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills have extended the contract of assistant general manager Doug Whaley, smoothing the transition for him to eventually replace GM Buddy Nix.
The 73-year-old Nix has identified Whaley as his eventual successor. Nix, however, has provided no indication as to when he might relinquish the job.
Team president and CEO Russ Brandon said there is no timetable set for a transition.
