Bills will consider firing Chan Gailey, Buddy Nix, according to report

Joel Auerbach

Both Chan Gailey and Buddy Nix could be fired this week as Bills owner Ralph Wilson ponders cleaning house in Buffalo.

The Buffalo Bills may join the list of teams parting ways with their head coach or general manager, as Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News reports that it's expected that at least head coach Chan Gailey will be let go this week. General manager Buddy Nix may also be on the chopping block, as owner Ralph Wilson considers a "clean house" move after another disappointing season.

The longtime Bills owner will likely hold a meeting of the team's top executives this week to decide the fate of his coach and GM, according to Gaughan. Rumors of Wilson firing both Nix and Gailey picked up steam as the final week of the season progressed and "Black Monday" approached. But Gaughan writes that Wilson has not informed team officials of his final decision yet. Firing Gailey is not unexpected, but the removal of Nix would come as a bit of surprise.

This is Gailey's third season as head coach in Buffalo. The Bills have had double-digit losses in each of his three seasons, compiling a 15-32 record with just one game left in the 2012 season. It appears that Sunday afternoon's game against the Jets is likely to be Gailey's last.
