(Newser) – Following a 17-9 season-ending loss to the Eagles yesterday, 82-year-old general manager Marv Levy, formerly the winningest coach in Bills' history, will be stepping down after two years on the job, the Buffalo News reports. An official announcement is expected by the end of the week.

Levy, who came out of retirement to helm the Bills' GM position in January 2006, met with owner Ralph Wilson Jr. earlier this week to discuss the aging hall-of-famer's future. Sources have reported to ESPN's Chris Mortensen that Levy will be welcome to remain with the team as a consultant if he so chooses.
