New GMs: Schoen, Poles, Adofo-Mensah
NFL Conference Championship - Three new general managers to discuss in the NFL: one last week, one today, and one coming soon.
- Joe Schoen, formerly assistant GM of the Bills, will take over the Giants.
- Ryan Poles, formerly assistant director of player personnel for the Chiefs, will take over the Bears. Word is that Poles may be paired with Jim Caldwell as head coach.
- Kwesi Adofo-Mensah, VP of football operations for the Browns, is rumored to be taking over the Vikings, since the Vikings were deciding between him and Poles.
Adofo-Mensah is of particular interest on this website because he's very analytics-driven, with both undergrad and graduate degrees in economics. Also note that these moves mean that (for now) there are more Black general managers in the NFL than head coaches.
