Hey folks. It's been a while since we put up the job listing for our open Assistant Editor position, and the time has come to finally introduce our new staff members. Please welcome... Danny Tuccitto and Rivers McCown.
Danny is from Miami. You may know him as "Florida Danny," the resident stat guy for SB Nation's "Niners Nation" blog. He's got a Masters in Sport Psychology from University of Florida, and he's been submitting papers to various sports research conferences for a while now. Danny's responsibilities will include developing new stats, plus the fantasy sit-start article Bill Barnwell used to do for ESPN, the FO Premium 24-hour fantasy football answering service, and various other things to be determined later.
Rivers is from Houston, where he's spent the past few months as managing editor on the SB Nation Houston blog. He's also a long-time FO game charter, and he studied English at the University of Houston. His responsibilities will include taking over for David Gardner as layout guy and grammar police, plus lots of ESPN Magazine bits and ESPN.com MNF features.
Our new assistant editors officially start July 1. This now gives Football Outsiders three full-time employees, the most ever, ready to meet your football analysis needs!

With Stanford's upset over Notre Dame and Ohio State's big win over rival Michigan in The Game, the playoff field has narrowed to the existing top four plus Michigan State, Ohio State, Stanford, and potentially North Carolina.
