    that sounds promising, doing something right for once (of course, I have no idea if this firm knows anything about football)

    Major sourcing firm... They will interview a number of former executives and industry insiders to get a handle on qualifying a candidate... Good Move...

    So basically they are using a recruiter.

    Korn Ferry is a top recruiting firm. The law firm I work for uses them to recruit for very senior positions in all of our offices -- worldwide.

    Haha. Not uncommon despite what you guys might think but it is funny nonetheless.

    Are these the same people who do the sleep and leadership seminars.

    This is what happens when football is not the family business of the owner. Hopefully these guys tell him to give DeCosta a piece of the franchise.

    This is great news. This org needs an unbiased and professional process here. Better than woody just listening to the media or with those already in the org who probably have their own agendas.

    A big step for Woody IMO

    I hear ya but I think this is a good sign. Woody does not know how to hire football people and he is not widely respected like some other owners are. This firm will bring some credibility to the search.
