    I don't like that we point out that our hire lived in Iowa as if it's a qualification all the time. BFD.

    The guy is the DFO, not a position coach. I wouldn't be too indifferent. A DFO isn't going to have much of an impact on what we see on the field on way or the other.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    I like the fact that we're hiring guys who aren't wondering, along with their families, "are we really going to like it here?"

    Re: New Director of Football Operations named.

    One of the often unknown elements of the AFL and associated leagues is the role that recruiting plays. I had often assumed that like other pro sports that recruiting isn't a part of the deal, but in fact it plays a big role. Besides the actual recruiting the management & administration is a big deal and it sounds like he will b e a good fit here. Perhaps more than any other position, this role is the right hand of the HC so having someone with a history and close relationship should help them get off the ground running. Not a typical hire, but a good fit I think

    Relax guys. The Director of Football Ops is responsible for making the travel arrangements, coordinating coaches schedules, etc. It is not a major position relating to recruiting or player instruction/influence.

    DFO does more stuff off the field...making sure stuff runs smoothly at home and on the road. They are on the sidelines, but don't really coach.

    Re: New Director of Football Operations named.

    I think one of the duties of this position is with relations with high school coaches and setting up clinics and things like that. Just out of curiosity, I'd be interested to know what some other things Brian will be doing if anyone happens to know.

    Edit: it looks like this was partially answered while I was typing this..

    Re: New Director of Football Operations named.

    I'm dumb on this subject, but:
    a) the Director of Football Operations reports to the Head Football? It sounds funny but makes sense.

    ==>PR is making $1.0 million and my guess is that BS is making a lot less than $1.0 million.

    Even tho he wont be handling anything really as far as actual coaching goes, its nice to know hes been around winning and has proven he can win.

    Re: New Director of Football Operations named.

    Does the DFO have any influence on the pregame activities/player intros? I was just thinking that someone with AFL experience might know to do some razzle and dazzle - and maybe get people here to stop complaining about it so much.

    Not typically that is usually the work of the marketing folks in athletic departments
