Russ Brandon resigns as president of Buffalo Bills and Sabres after investigation

In a stunning development Tuesday afternoon, Russ Brandon has resigned his position as managing partner and president of Pegula Sports and Entertainment, which included his overseeing the operations of both the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres.

“I have been contemplating transitioning out of my role for some time,” Brandon wrote in a text which was sent to multiple news organizations including the Democrat and Chronicle. “My goal when the Pegulas purchased the franchise was to reach 20 years with the Bills in which I achieved this past November. Given where we are from a timing standpoint, particularly with the conclusion of the NFL Draft, now seems like the time to make that transition. As grateful as I am for the amazing experience and the incredible people I’ve had the privilege to work with the past two decades, I am just as anxious for the professional opportunities that lie ahead.”

The Buffalo News reported that his resignation is tied to an internal investigation into Brandon’s workplace behavior and allegations of personal misconduct having to do with allegations of inappropriate relationships with female employees at PSE.
