SAN DIEGO (AP) -Buddy Nix is out as assistant general manager of the San Diego Chargers, with the team saying he retired and his wife saying he resigned.
The Chargers sent out a news release late Tuesday afternoon saying Nix had resigned, and that a restructuring of the personnel department by general manager A.J. Smith had begun, including the hiring of Randy Mueller, a former NFL GM, as senior executive.
Nix wasn't available for comment Tuesday night.
``He more or less resigned,'' his wife, Diann, said from the couple's home in Tennessee. ``He came home this morning.''
Neither Smith nor team president Dean Spanos were immediately available for comment.
The Chargers fell one win shy of going to the Super Bowl last season.
