Jeffrey Lurie On New Power Structure
Jeffrey Lurie wants a collaborative approach moving forward, one that will prominently involve Howie Roseman and Tom Donahoe on the personnel side.
“Howie Roseman will remain as Executive Vice President in charge of football operations, Tom Donahoe will run the day-to-day player personnel department, which is a crucial hire and a crucial position in terms of player personnel,” said Lurie. “Howie will be responsible for making sure our player personnel department is as good as it gets in the NFL and be accountable for that. That’s pretty much the way it would go. A new head coach, executive vice president of football operations and a player personnel head, they’re all partners to collaborate. That’s the structure.”
Lurie clarified that the title “general manager” will not be used in this set-up; in other words, we shouldn’t expect an outside GM hiring. Roseman will oversee the operation while Donahoe will be in charge of day-to-day affairs.
“[Roseman] will have a say in personnel as a collaborator, yes,” Lurie said.
Roseman is back in a position of power on the personnel side, with perhaps more clout than ever.
