Former Eagles cornerback Troy Vincent was named the NFL's executive vice president of football operations, a major promotion for the 43-year-old Pennsbury High School alumnus.
In his new role, Vincent will oversee all of the league's football operations. Those include officiating, on-field discipline, and player personnel, among other areas. He will also be a nonvoting member of the league's competition committee.
"We will emphasize clarity, consistency, and credibility to ensure the highest standards and best practices for our teams and fans," Vincent said in a statement. "We will work closely with all stakeholders to preserve, innovate, and develop the game."
