The organization announced Thursday that Mary Wilson, Ralph Wilson's widow, has taken over the role of controlling owner. The team also said that a process will begin "at an appropriate time" for the sale of the franchise.
"This process will ensure that the club complies and is faithful to NFL rules and to its obligations to New York State and Erie County," the team wrote in the statement. "We plan to have detailed discussions with the NFL, the State and County, and others as we determine the timing and structure of any sales process."
Mary Wilson said that she has complete confidence in Russ Brandon, the team's president and CEO, to continue running the day-to-day operations of the team. And of course, general manager Doug Whaley and coach Doug Marrone will continue in their roles.
Wrote the team in the statement: "Brandon, Whaley and Marrone will direct the team with the same goal firmly in place -- winning."
