Recently, longtime Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage left his post earlier this year, and it was unclear what his future plans were.
Now, we know what it is, and it comes via the new Alliance of American Football. According to a report from AZCentral.com, Savage has landed the Phoenix team’s general manager role.
Former UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel was recently announced as the head coach of the team, and Savage will work closely with him. The team’s head of football operations is excited to have Savage on board:
“Phil’s experience as an NFL coach, scout, player personnel executive and general manager is exactly what is needed to build a championship-caliber team from scratch,” said J.K. McKay, head of football operations.
“Over the course of his career he has shown a knack for identifying top talent, and we look forward to him doing the same here in Phoenix for The Alliance.”
Since the league starts in February and ends in April, Savage is expected to continue his duties as Alabama’s radio color commentator.
However, during the offseason, he’ll now have his hands full with his other job.
