SITE NEWS: Roster Turnover

Today we want to announce a couple of changes on the Football Outsiders staff.

First of all, a change among our assistant editors, the two full-time spots. Rivers McCown is heading off to Bleacher Report to be their man in charge of covering the AFC South. He'll still be around here a bit, contributing to the site and to Football Outsiders Almanac. Replacing Rivers as an assistant editor will be Vince Verhei, who has been part of the FO team for a long time. (In fact, he was actually assistant editor back when it was only a part-time position, before FO had any full-time employees other than me.)

We would also like to welcome Chad Peltier as our new college football writer. He's been writing for Bill Connelly over at Football Study Hall and will be taking over the One Foot Inbounds and Seventh Day Adventure columns this fall. Chad roots for Ohio State because his parents went there, but he himself graduated from Georgia, which as he points out makes him feel very confused about Urban Meyer. He now lives in New Haven, Connecticut, one man shining the bright light of college football fandom in the dark and dismal NFL-dominated New England from which Football Outsiders itself originated.

(Note: tongue firmly in cheek.)

Will Rivers continue commenting during Scramble, or will hearing about the Texans cease being so entertaining this year?

I'm not completely sure how that will work yet. I'm assuming Sunday will be the busiest day of my week now, so maybe not. But we'll see.

Wleocme C. Peltier and good luck to R. McCown.

What happened to Ben Muth?

I'm assuming this is a good thing for Rivers, so congrats, and glad we'll still have him around in some capacity.

Looks like he has been doing other work recently.
