Levy Steps Down as Bills General Manager

Levy

The Bills will be looking for a new GM, as Monday Marv Levy announced that he is stepping down a GM of the team.  The team seemed to be heading in the right direction, but after a 7-9 season the 82-year-old decided that he had had enough.  “It has been an experience that I have enjoyed immensely,” Levy said in a statement released by the Bills. “Despite an unprecedented number of season-ending injuries, Dick Jauron, his coaching staff and an admirable core of high-character players are heading in the right direction.  If my contributions to their efforts have been meaningful, I then take my leave from One Bills Drive, thankful and gratified,” said Levy.

It does not appear that the Bills will make any drastic moves as far as the head coaching spot is concerned, as Dick Jauron’s role with the team appears safe.  Levy hired Jauron one week after he took over the GM role.  Owner Ralph Wilson has already said that he is happy with Jauron, this despite a huge amount of injuires that put the team behind the 8-ball this past season.  “I feel compelled to now turn my energies and my time to other endeavors that intrigue me,” Levy said. “There will always remain a part of me, however, that walks down that tunnel out onto the playing field at Ralph Wilson Stadium on those excitement-charged autumn Sunday afternoons.”
