Buffalo Bills Announce CEO Russ Brandon as Team President
In a press conference held at noon today, the Buffalo Bills named CEO Russ Brandon team President which means he will be in charge of the day-to-day operations. It’s a position that’s been sorely missing as Bills Owner Ralph C. Wilson Jr. is 94 years old and definitely can’t do that anymore.
Brandon was seriously moved by the change by saying: “I want to thank Mr. Wilson for this incredible opportunity,” Brandon said. “I’m humbled and honored in his confidence in me to lead this organization into a new era and to provide a clear direction and winning pathway into the future.”
This move has a precedent, as the Bills did this with then GM Tom Donahoe, but after more losing seasons and some questionable draft moves, Ralph Wilson fired him and renamed himself President. This time I think it’s different as it seems like coaches are lining up to take over this job including recently fired Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith. Smith would bring an interesting defensive backs coach, Gill Byrd Sr. Byrd is the father of current Bills free safety Jairus Byrd. It’d be an interesting twist to say the least.
I really hope this makes the Bills good for the long-term not just the short-term, and I think it will. Especially if they bring in the right coach, and draft wise for at least the next two years.
