Mary Wilson now Bills controlling owner

  • Text size: + -

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Mary Wilson is taking over as the Buffalo Bills' controlling owner after the death last week of her husband, Ralph Wilson.

Ralph Wilson was the founder and only owner of the franchise. He died March 25 at the age of 95.

The team says, "A process will be established at an appropriate time for the sale of the franchise."

The Bills also announced that CEO Russ Brandon, general manager Doug Whaley and coach Doug Marrone will remain in charge of football operations under the new ownership.

Ralph Wilson founded the Bills when the American Football League began play in 1960 and was a major factor in the merger of the AFL and NFL that was completed in 1970.
