Eagles Hire Former Steelers GM Tom DonahoeBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, Front Office, News Thursday, May 24th, 2012
Eagles GM Howie Roseman announced the club’s hiring of new personnel help him in their player personnel department. The Birds hired former Steelers and Bills GM Tom Donohoe as the senior football adviser.
“He’s been with winning organizations. He’s someone that can add a lot of insight,” Roseman added about Donahoe.
“We’re very excited about the additions to our staff,” said Roseman, “Obviously, Tom Donahoe and Jake Hallum bring with them a tremendous wealth of experience and they are eager to get started. We’re also looking forward to working with Ed Marynowitz; a guy who we feel has a bright future in this league and has a great track record while working at the University of Alabama. John, Dan and Alec have proven themselves over the last couple of years and are deserving of their promotions, while Jake has done a great job thus far in his role.”
Marynowitz will be the assistant director of pro scouting, which should give the Birds an advantage in the SEC since he’s coming from Alabama. This is a key asset since the SEC is considered the best conference in college football.
Hallum will serve as a senior scout.
They’re replacing Phil Savage, Ahmad Russell and Dan Jeremiah, who are all leaving the Eagles organization for various reasons.
Donohoe was the director of football operations of the Steelers (1991-99) and the GM and team president of the Bills (2001-05).
