The NFL is making a big push to help its teams find new ways to boost production.
The league’s board of governors on Wednesday voted to create a new group called “project management skills,” which is tasked with “helping NFL teams identify and develop the right personnel to execute projects and build long-term sustainability.”
The new group will have a “major impact on how teams design, develop and execute their teams’ product and operations,” the NFL said in a news release.
It will also provide “the NFL with a unique opportunity to improve its productivity, operational effectiveness and the way we collaborate with our employees.”
The new group, which will include the heads of all NFL teams, will have 10 employees, but there’s no guarantee that it will have the capacity to create the kind of talent pool needed to help the NFL turn around its aging product.
A number of teams have already made big moves to improve their talent pool this offseason.
The New York Jets hired defensive line coach Mike Mularkey, while the Denver Broncos hired former NFL defensive backs coach/defensive backs coordinator Mike Singletary.
