ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - A person familiar with the decision says Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson is relinquishing his title as team president to CEO Russ Brandon. The move gives Brandon operational control of the franchise.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the move had not yet been announced.
Several media outlets, including The Buffalo News, reported the decision earlier Tuesday.
The announcement expected at a noon news conference comes a day after the Bills fired coach Chan Gailey.
Brandon spent most of Monday meeting with Wilson at his home in suburban Detroit.
In his new role, Brandon will report directly to Wilson, the 94-year-old owner and founder of the franchise.
