The NFL has promoted Maryann Turcke to chief operating officer Eddie Goldman Jersey , making her the highest-ranking woman at the league offices.
Turcke has overseen NFL Network in the last year. She replaces Tod Leiweke, who has left the league after three years in the job.
Turcke will lead the marketing, communications, human resources, international and events and technology departments.
"Since joining NFL Media last year, Maryann has distinguished herself by leading NFL Network to a record-setting year http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/ezekiel-elliott-jersey ," Commissioner Roger Goodell. "We look forward to Maryann building upon this success, and her previous achievements as president of Bell Media, as she steps into this larger role. I expect her leadership, vision and corporate governance experience to help evolve our organization and take it to a higher level."
Goodell also praised Leiweke.
"During his time here in New York, Tod was instrumental in guiding our long-term strategic process and has been a valuable resource, not only to me but to ownership http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/devin-hester-jersey , our clubs and the entire league," he said. "I thank him for his passion and dedication to the mission of the NFL."
Turcke has been based in Los Angeles, but will move to the New York offices. NFL Network had a strong year with Turcke in charge, ranking second to ESPN in viewership during the season.
Goodell says more changes at NFL headquarters are coming. Recently, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones criticized the quality of leadership at the New York offices.
The Dallas Cowboys have become an organization known for solid roster building as of late. Dallas landed a gem of a quarterback in Dak Prescott and did so with a tremendous value draft pick after literally every team in the league passed on him multiple times. As long as Ezekiel Elliott avoids off-the-field issues that could prevent him from being available to feature in the team鈥檚 backfield, he could go down as the best running back of his generation. Hey http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/marcus-murphy-jersey , the Cowboys even managed to not draft quarterback Johnny Manziel, although Jerry Jones may have been physically restrained from running to the podium to make that selection.
No team is flawless, of course, and the Cowboys have gotten plenty wrong in free agency and draft classes throughout the 2000s. Like most NFL franchises, though, the Cowboys have largely stayed away from making trades involving All-Pro players and big names in recent memory. That Shawn Lauvao Jersey , after all, is the nature of the league and one way the NFL is different than the NBA or MLB. It cannot be forgotten, though, that the Cowboys were responsible for what are often looked at as two historically bad trades. Those transactions still haunt passionate fans of 鈥淎merica鈥檚 Team鈥?long after those deals were approved by the NFL.
