(AP) — The owners of the Buffalo Sabres have hired a high-profile investment banker to lead their potential bid to buy the Buffalo Bills.
Three people familiar with the hire confirmed Wednesday that Terry and Kim Pegula have retained Steve Greenberg, of Allen & Co., which is regularly involved in sales of sports teams.
The Pegulas have not publicly said whether they will try to buy the NFL team, which is on the market after the team's owner and founder Ralph Wilson died in March. But The Associated Press has reported the Pegulas were among prospective buyers who received a non-disclosure agreement and background on the Bills from a law firm representing Wilson's estate.
The people who confirmed Greenberg's hiring spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Pegulas have not announced it. The move was first reported by The Buffalo News on its website.
