This Levy hasn't Run Dry Just Yet

Longtime Buffalo Bills head coach and short-time Bills general manager Marv Levy is leaving the sport behind. Some have reasoned it's due to growing health concerns.

Levy also wanted to make one thing clear: at 82, his health is fine and had nothing to do with his decision to cut ties with the Bills. "Not true at all," Levy said, referring to speculation he had grown weary, or that the long hours of work proved draining. "I'm not slowing down. I want to do something to speed up."

"He definitely made it clear that he's not stepping down, he's stepping out," safety George Wilson said. "He seemed to be happy and eager and ready to move on to the next phase of his career."
We remain unconvinced. Our theory is that the 82-year-old misheard someone discussing this story. As evidenced from his biography on his official Web site:
Coach Levy and the Bills will be remembered for their ability to bounce back and rise again, and in the words of Levy's personal hero Winston Churchill, "Never, never, never, never, never surrender!"
Levy will do whatever it takes to remain ahead of those swarming buffalo.
