Bills add veteran scout Nix to scouting department

LINK

Orchard Park, NY - The Bills are dipping into their past, to beef up their scouting staff in the future.  News 4 has learned that veteran NFL scout Buddy Nix is returning to the Bills, in the positon of National Scout.

Nix confirmed the appointment when we talked to him by phone, from his home in Tennessee.  He spent eight years with the Bills as a scout and personnel expert, when John Butler was the team's general manager, and AJ Smith was the chief pro scout.  When Butler and Smith left the Bills in 2001 for San Diego, Nix followed them West.

He eventually rose to the position of Assistant GM and Director of Player Personnel with the Chargers, a position he held for five years.  Nix stepped down from the job a year ago, after an apparent falling out with GM A.J. Smith. 

Nix is 69-years old.  He'll report to Bills VP of College Scouting Tom Modrak and act as a National Scout, looking over college talent.

That's good, I guess.  A step in the right direction I hope.  The scouting department has been pretty sub par for some time now, in my opinion.  I hope this dude can help us, though I wouldn't necessarily say that the mid-late 90's drafts that he was a part of were all that spectacular. In fact, they were mostly terrible. Hopefully his presence wasn't the reason for that!

Let's hope for the best!

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
