ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -Jim Overdorf was promoted to Buffalo Bills senior vice president of football administration, giving him control over contract negotiations and salary cap decisions.
The move announced Thursday was part of a minor front office restructuring that follows Russ Brandon's promotion to chief operating officer. Brandon's promotion came after the Bills elected not to fill the general manager's role after Marv Levy stepped down at the end of the season.
For Overdorf, the promotion means he formally becomes the team's top executive in day-to-day football matters, answering to Brandon and Bills owner Ralph Wilson. Overdorf is entering his 23rd season with the team and has handled contract talks for most of this decade.
In other moves, Marc Honan becomes senior vice president of marketing and broadcasting; Pete Guelli was promoted to senior vice president of business ventures; David Wheat was promoted to senior vice president of business operations; and Gretchen Geitter was promoted to vice president of community relations.
